The winners of Ireland’s Student Wood Awards will be revealed next week.

The awards, now in their fifth year, are organised by the Wood Marketing Federaton in association with wood-ni. They are open to third-year architecture, engineering and design students.

The winner in each of the three categories – timber and engineering in construction; architecture; and innovative use of timber in design – receive €2,000, as do their colleges.

Twenty finalists have been chosen from heats held at colleges through Ireland and Northern Ireland and the winners, chosen by a panel of judges led by architect Duncan Stewart, will be announced at a ceremony in Co Kildare next Friday.
