The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and GE Appliances announced the winners of their seventh annual Charette Competition, which awards scholarships to students who demonstrate skill in designing a safe, functional kitchen within a three-hour period.

Students were challenged to design a kitchen using GE Monogram brand appliances for clients Joshua and Ashley Henderson and their 14-year-old daughter Taylor, who often hosts her school's softball team, so a conveniently located GE under-counter beverage center was desired.

More than 400 students from 31 colleges participated in the challenge. Students created a kitchen floor plan with specifications, along with a design statement and perspective or elevation of a kitchen featuring GE appliances. The design was required to be completed within three hours.

Alicia Meeker of Vancouver Community College, Vancouver, BC, Canada, was the first place winner. She won a $5,000 scholarship.

In second place, winner of a $4,000 scholarship, was Valene Edwards of Brigham Young University-Idaho; Rexburg, ID.

In third place, winner of a $3,000 scholarship, was Julie Arthurs of Lakeland College, Vermillion, AB, Canada.

In fourth place, winner of a $2,500 scholarship, was Rebecca Johnston of Lakeland College, Vermillion, AB, Canada.

In fifth place, winner of a $2,000 scholarship, was Alexandra Williams of Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA.

Honorable mentions, each winning a $1,000 scholarship, were:
* Jill Garibaldi, Canada College, Redwood City, CA
* Nozomi Galloway, West Valley College, Saratoga, CA
* Karen Klavuhn, Santa Fe Community College, Santa Fe, NM
* Ellen Peterson, Alexandria Technical & Community College, Alexandria, MN
* Kent Schumacher, University of Nebraska Kearney Campus, Kearney, NB

"We are proud to support the programs that will help develop student designers into the future generation of professional designers," said 2012 NKBA President Alan W. Zielinski, CKD. "When students have targeted their area of interest in the kitchen and bath industry, we want to offer them opportunity to hone their interest and ability and turn it into a real skill and a solid career."
