About the Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition

The Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition is intended to enlighten students and engineering, design, and architecture professionals about aluminum extrusions' superior advantages and many applications.

The 2019 Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition will be open to students only. The Call for Entries is now available here!

The Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition challenges designers and engineers to think about aluminum extrusions as a holistic solution to a design problem by creating a product or system that includes at least one extruded aluminum component. Think beyond the ordinary to come up with unique and resourceful uses for aluminum extrusion!

The next professional competition will be held to coincide with the Twelfth International Aluminum Extrusion Technology Seminar, scheduled for May 19-22, 2020 in Orlando, Florida. Watch for the 2020 Professional Design Competition announcement on this page as details become available.

The Bonnell Sustainable Design Challenge

During the 2019 Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition, there is also the opportunity for students to use their aluminum extrusion knowledge and create a sustainable design!

Humanitarian and environmental disasters and people with physical disabilities often inspire savvy designers and inventors with ideas to develop solutions to these challenges -- and aluminum extrusions offer the perfect sustainable material.

The Bonnell Aluminum Sustainable Design Challenge accepts entries that, in addition to the four basic ET Foundation Design Competition criteria, best addresses societal and/or environmental challenges or concerns.

The ET Foundation is grateful to Bonnell Aluminum for their sponsorship of the 2019 Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition awards.
