IDEC values the recognition of excellence in service, teaching, and scholarship from both its own membership and the larger international design community. Our awards are distributed based on documented excellence and are not automatically awarded each year. Selected awardees will be presented at the IDEC Annual Conference. We encourage you to review the calls today and nominate someone who you feel fits the specific nominating criteria. Nominations for each Service, Teaching, and Scholarship award are due in October of each calendar year. Additional awards are presented at the IDEC Annual and Regional Conferences.

In addition to the above awards, Service Recognition Awards are also presented at the Annual Conference to signify the end of a volunteer’s service term.
