Design-A-Throw Competition is a nationwide pattern design competition open to college and university students enrolled in a graphic design, fashion, interior design, textile or any other related field. Every Fall semester, students can submit unlimited designs that fit the competition's themes, which change each school year. Cash prizes are awarded to the top nine designs, worth $1,000, $500, and $200. The Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000, plus a luxurious, jaquard knit throw blanket of their design. All winning designers may see their patterns knit into a Denali Home Collection throw blanket! Contestants that do not win a prize will retain the rights to their designs at the completion of the contest. For more information, see our Students page or contact us at email@example.com.
Schools can participate
and receive scholarship donations by incorporating the competition into their curriculum as a classroom assignment. Professors that do this will receive a $500 scholarship donation to their program, department or college from the Denali Home Collection and Monterey Mills. Past participating schools have used this money to purchase additional equipment and otherwise re-invest in the program.
