The school is holding a contest that aims "to encourage the growth of the next generation of woodworkers and advance the careers of those with exceptional promise." Events will be held in Rockport, Maine at the school's Messler Gallery.
To submit an original wooden piece for consideration, you must be under 30 years of age as of the exhibition opening date, which is September 16, 2011. The esteemed jurors come from the best in woodworking education, from RISD's John Dunnigan, artists in the field, and contributors at Fine Woodworking. The prizes are varied and many winners will be selected. If you're working on something that'll knock these judges' socks off, you must apply by April 1 to participate in the contest.
