We live in a world surrounded by products ranging from electric toothbrushes to lawn mowers to air mattresses. How is a consumer supposed to decide which is best? There are many important questions we ask ourselves at BestReviews when first studying a product with which we are unfamiliar such as: is it effective; is it user-friendly; is it durable; and most importantly, is it safe?
Once we find a product that is easy to use (for a non-expert) and safe while still effective and durable, we know we've found something special. This scholarship was created to get you thinking about product design and what makes something "user-friendly."
BestReviews wants students to put on their thinking caps and write a 500-word (or less) essay on the following:
How can great product design positively impact the world? What have you done to showcase your passion for product design? Do you have a unique idea that can make an already existing product better with the backbone of being user friendly, safe, and effective?
Your entry may include diagrams, sketches, or templates, or nothing but words. The winner will receive a $2,000 check to be spent on tuition fees and supplies.
