What About The Actual Awards?

Each award has a corresponding trophy, all of which were designed by the wonderfully talented Cesar Rezer, an experienced university graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. The models were then brought to MatterThings Inc. - 3D Printing, who printed 11 trophies. Each trophy took approximately 13 hours to be fully printed, using a combination of PLA bio-plastic, stainless steel, copper, and bronze. Let's have a look at these beautiful works of art.


The Growth - Student's Choice Award

This piece is the model used for the student's choice award. The piece represents the achievements in life which take time to accomplish.


Outstanding - Student of The Year Award

This bold piece is the student of the year trophy. The jaggedness of the base represents the path taken to get to where one would be today. The top of the trophy stands out on the top of the jagged base, as the product of the path taken.


Innersection - Employer's Choice Award
