All you interaction design students out there get ready to show us your goods.

This year I’m co-chairing the Interaction 11 Student Competition with Liz Danzico and we want to see you thinking laterally. The competition brings forward exceptional and engaged undergraduate and graduate students in both critical thinking and hands-on experience over the course of the conference. Itʼs an opportunity to present work in a way that shows rather than tells, and a unique opportunity for students who may be seeking to connect with new colleagues, potential employers, funders, or new networks.

This yearʼs focus is based on the concept of “Use, not own.” Great interactions can connect people to create opportunities for experiences that outweigh the “joy” of ownership. How we you reduce our environmental footprint by sharing products or services? Students selected by the team of mentors will be invited to the conference where theyʼll compete on the remainder of the competition.

The entry deadline is December 4th, 2010, so head over to the site and get yourself registered.

Oh, and do the sporting thing – reblog and retweet the announcement so that your student colleagues know about it!
