Every month, Makers Empire hosts an in-app 3D design competition giving students around the world the opportunity to test their Design Thinking skills against their peers.

To coincide with International Women’s Day in March, students were challenged to design a statue using Makers Empire 3D software to represent the achievements of a woman who has made a positive change in their country. It could be a historical figure, or someone who is alive and active today. Students were encouraged to to show us why this woman is special, not what she looks like and to be creative.

Students from all over the world submitted almost 6,000 entries for the Super Women competition. We really enjoyed looking at all the entries if it made judging the designs quite challenging! In fact, our learning development team wanted students to know that the quality of entries was really high this month. If your students missed out this time they should definitely enter the next competition because there are clearly lots of talented designers out there!

Ultimately, there were some standout designs so without further ado, congratulations to the following winners and runners ups!
