Seafood contest winners

Culinary experts at the University of Delaware's annual Coast Day celebration showed off their skills by participating in oyster shucking, chowder and crab cake contests, with attendees helping to choose the winners.

The bookstore’s design, which one judge called “a unique redefinition of the normal retail experience,” was selected for the award out of hundreds of submissions from around the world.

DIGSAU’s design came to fruition when the UD bookstore opened for business in August 2011.
