Two Open Minds teams win Spark Awards

Two teams that are coming to the Open Minds exhibition at the NCIIA conference in March, Balde a Balde and Team GiraDora, recently won Spark Awards. Spark Awards are competitions created to promote great design and designers and to encourage people to explore their creativity.

Team Giradora, developers of a human-powered washer and spin dryer to increase the efficiency and improve the experience of washing clothes by hand, took the highest prize. Balde a Balde (developing a portable faucet that provides running water from any bucket) took the Gold Award. Congratulations to the teams!
