Seminole State College of Florida's Alice Mulcock is the top student kitchen designer in the nation.

It's the second year in a row that a Seminole State College interior design student has taken first place in the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Student Design Competition in the Kitchen Design category.

For her winning design in the 2012 contest, Alice Mulcock, of Orange City, received a $2,500 scholarship and an all-expenses-paid trip to the NKBA show in Chicago April 24-26.

Mulcock says it was an “absolute shock” to learn that she was even a finalist in the competition.

“Although I held out hope that I’d make it to the second judging," she says, "I really thought that with the stiff competition out there, it would be difficult.”

Her winning design was for the kitchen of a 19th-century Federal-style row house in downtown Chicago.

When the winners were announced in a webinar on Feb. 3, “I had to fight back the tears,” she says. Mulcock, who graduates April 27 with her Associate in Science degree in interior design, plans to pursue her bachelor’s degree at Seminole State.

She was one of six winners of the competition, which drew more than 320 entries from students at colleges and universities across North America.

Another Seminole State student, Andrea Brown, of Clermont, received an honorable mention for her design.

Seminole State is one of only three NKBA-accredited programs in Florida.

For more than 30 years, Seminole State’s Interior Design Program has been a leader in Florida. Seminole State is the only public college or university in Central Florida offering a four-year interior design degree. For more information, visit the Interior Design Program website.
