Louisiana-Pacific selects judges for "Dream On" furniture design contest.
In addition to the grand prize in each category, runner-up prizes including top quality tool selections from Bridge City Tool Works will be awarded. Entries must specify at least one of the following L-P industrial wood products: hardboard, particle-board, hardwood veneer, industrial lumber, redwood, whitewood lumber, MDF and oriented strand board. The deadline for submission of entries is March 31, 1992.
"We've promised furniture manufacturers that no matter how demanding their designs, L-P's industrial panels and solid wood products can help them produce quality results," said Kathleen Arndt, the company's advertising manager. "This contest gives us a chance to substantiate that pledge."
"We're excited about the team we've assembled to judge our competition. The five people bring an incredible depth of talent to the task of choosing the winning designs," Ms. Arndt said.
