Power management company Eaton, a 2017 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence Award recipient, recently announced Kassondra Hauck, a student at Central Michigan University, as a SOURCE Awards winner for her conceptual lighting design project in the company's 40th annual lighting design competition. All winners were recognized during LIGHTFAIR® International 2017, one of the world's largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade shows and conferences, held May 7 to 11 in Philadelphia.
The annual competition focuses on furthering the understanding, knowledge and function of lighting as a primary element in design and is part of Eaton's commitment to celebrating current and future lighting designers. Student entries are judged on the blending of aesthetics, creativity, selection and application of the lighting fixtures and energy efficiency.
Hauck was recognized with an honorable mention during the awards ceremony and presented with a crystal trophy and $500 monetary prize. Winners were also offered an invitation to attend a complimentary class at the SOURCE, Eaton's state-of-the-art lighting educational center located in Peachtree City, Georgia.
Hauck's winning project is titled The Community Teen Center. Hauck was under the instruction of Julie Qun Zuo, associate professor of Interior Design in the Department of Human Environmental Studies at the university.
"We congratulate the talented student winners of this year's SOURCE Awards competition, our 40th year of celebrating lighting design," said Kraig Kasler, president, Eaton's Lighting Division. "We hope their impressive work will inspire them towards a career in lighting."
