Cobourg, Ont.-based custom molder Horizon Plastics International has handed out its inaugural scholarship to a student entered in the recent Rocket Design Show and Competition.

The company awarded the scholarship to Amanda Ruscica, a Humber College graduate, for her design of a bicycle trailer called the “Karyolla”, which can use the advantages of Horizon Plastic’s structural foam and structural web molding processes.

Held in Toronto on May 12-13, the Rocket Design Show is sponsored by the Association of Chartered Industrial Designers of Ontario and features the thesis projects of the Industrial Design graduates from Ontario’s three schools of industrial design: Carleton University, Humber College, and the Ontario College of Art & Design.

“Today it is more important than ever that we support and foster innovation to ensure that we build successful products, companies and industries for the future,” said Horizon Plastics president Peter Garvey. “We are certainly glad to have the opportunity to be part of that future.”
