The students, all seniors in the school’s Design and Construction Technologies, entered their work in the annual contest’s Residential Computer Aided Design (CAD) category, competing against students from many local high schools. Drawings in the Creativity sub-category garnered first place for Christopher Hasbun (a Pasadena resident). Alex Ruiz (of Los Angeles) took second place and Darryl Anas (of Alhambra) rounded out a sweep with a third-place win.
In Technical Merit, Hasbun once again earned a first place trophy while Ruiz took home the third place award. All winners also earned cash prizes of $100 to $250 with their awards.
“We’re extremely proud of our students and their efforts,” said Bosco Tech Dean of Technology Education Jeff Krynen. “Our technology programs, especially the architectural and design aspects, stress real-world application of the design thinking process. Students have to understand practical usability before creating a good design. It’s competition results like the BIA’s that demonstrate why our students experience so much success in the universities they attend after graduation.”
