Three years ago in August, two women inching close to 40, decided to partner up and create Midwest Nest Magazine, from the ground up. With two crazy months of preparation, we were able to launch our very first issue in October 2017. Unsure if our dream would be embraced or ignored, we forged ahead, keeping our eye on the local people, places, and organizations that were important to us. Three years into our journey, three design challenges, and over 40 regional and national awards later, we're still here and still proud.
Our team is small but mighty, and nothing would have been achieved without each of their efforts. Thank you to our fantastic contributors, devoted and talented photographers, graphic designers, copyeditor, circulation manager, and of course, our readers. Another big "Thank You" needs to go to our wonderful families, who have continually helped with our events and distribution, supporting our endeavors each and every day.
This month, we are so proud to give you the final look inside our 3rd Annual "Design Challenge: Boxed-In!". Thank you to our sponsor, SCHEELS Home & Hardware / Design Studio, our event host, West Acres, and all 12 of this year's designers who generously donated their time and talent. They conquered the design in one week, showcased a local artist, and gathered thousands in donations for their chosen charity. We'd also like to thank this year's award sponsor, Curated by THD!
Special thanks to the team at Benjamin Custom Homes for putting the hard work in to build and install this year's 8'x8' plywood boxes, along with HDS for supplying the lumber, and Weyer-For-Hire for donating the paint.
Our sincere congratulations to the 2020 Design Challenge Winners: Sydney Fritz and Trever Hill, along with Runners-Up, Maria Bosak and Brandi Youngmark!
With Midwest regard,
