Student Design Awards

29-Dec-2017
With the 2017 Student Design Awards as our foundation, we anticipate the 2018 Student Design Awards as more robust, with more Design Awards submissions. Last year we received 7 submissions from individual students and student teams; indications are this year’s Student Design Awards program will have greater participation! 
 
To express our support of the students, and to reinforce our desire to see a growing movement of design excellence in the coming generation of architects, we have created a Sponsorship opportunity for Student Design Awards!
 
PURPOSE
The purpose of AIA Alabama’s Student Design Awards program is to recognize excellence in architectural design within the student community, to promote architecture in the State of Alabama, and to build a stronger relationship between AIA Alabama and the academic community.
 
AWARDS 
Student Design Award categories are the same as AIA Alabama’s Excellence in Design awards – Honor Award, Merit Award, and Honorable Mention. The AIA Alabama Design Awards Jury will review and consider student design projects prepared within 3rdyear through graduate school design studios.
 
In addition to certificates similar to those for the ‘professional’ Design Awards, we are offering monetary awards this year. Award amounts will vary and will ultimately depend on the number of Student Design Award Sponsors.  Sponsorship funds exceeding that needed for the monetary awards will offset student registrations for the Design Awards Reception/Gala.
 
AMOUNT
Sponsorship is only $200.
 
SPONSOR RECOGNITION
  • All Sponsors will be recognized for their interest, generosity, and commitment as follows:
  • Before the Gala, names of sponsoring firms will be included in an email to all submitting students.
  • During the Gala, Sponsors’ names will be posted with the Student Design Awards submissions. Sponsors’ names will also be read in conjunction with the Student Design Awards presentation.
  • After the Gala, Sponsors’ names will be posted at the students’ Schools of Architecture and on the AIA Alabama website.
 
We encourage each and every firm to show their support for our aspiring architects through this sponsorship opportunity!
