April 19, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- A Western Michigan University student claimed the top prize at a recent statewide interior design competition.

Alison Wood, a junior majoring in interior design from Saginaw, Mich., took first place in the Michigan Design Center - American Society of Interior Designers Junior Competition. Wood's work was selected from a field of entries that came from students enrolled in interior design programs at colleges and universities throughout the state.

The competition is based on the National Council of Interior Design Qualification Examination and must be completed within one week without faculty input. Wood won a $1,000 cash prize.

Fellow WMU junior and interior design major Kendra Kivi of Ann Arbor, Mich., received an honorable mention.

The awards were handed out on March 23 at the MDC-ASID'S Annual Career Day in Troy.

WMU's interior design program is part of the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences.
