4th Annual Visioneer Design Challenge a Big Success

The Wisconsin Art Education Association held its 4th annual Visioneer Design Challenge at the Peck School of Art, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee on April 23, 2010. About 150 students from schools across the state participated in the festival. This year's theme was Green Environment.

The Visioneer Design Challenge is a statewide learning program and competition for high school and middle school students interested in design arts connecting with professional designers in each field. Eleven Challenges have been developed by professional designers. These challenges cover design in everyday things, design of spaces and places, design for communication and information and design for human interaction.

Other states are planning to develop their own Visioneer Design Challenges and the International Design Education Alliance for Schools (IDEAS) is planning to hold a national festival so students from across the country can meet and share experiences.
