Tribal Design - the Many Faces of Cultural Art..

A Three-Dimensional Competition A traditional design Swiss clock and preying Puma sculpture received top honors in the eight annual Dremel Creative Project Scholarship Contest. The contest challenges high school students to compete nationally in sculpture, carving and woodworking. Twenty-six prize-winning projects were selected in this year's contest from over 150 high school students' entries throughout the country. Entries are received in two different categories and divisions: Junior Woodworking and Junior Carved or Decorated Projects and Senior Woodworking and Senior Carved or Decorated Projects. They are judged on design originality and creativity, workmanship, completeness of the accompanying project plans and the amount of Dremel product application. Prize winners receive a cash award of as much as $500. In addition, winners' schools receive a number of Dremel power tools for use in shop courses.

Brian James Kipe of Fairfield, Pennsylvania designed and built a traditional-design Swiss clock to win the grand prize in this year's Woodworking category. Judges cited the clock's intricacies and prize worksmanship in awarding the grand prize to the high school student. Scott Arnold, of Moraga, California, designed and sculptured a soapstone Puma to win the Carving category grand prize. According to the judges, the sculpture captured a life-like representation of a Puma stalking its prey.

Entry deadline for next year's contest is February 16, 1989. Entry forms are available beginning in October by writing: Dremel, Creative Scholarship Contest, 4915 Twenty-first Street, Racine, Wisconsin, 53406.
