2016 Professional Encouragement Awards

Congratulations to the five students who were awarded DIA Professional Encouragement Awards at the conclusion of 2016.  The DIA offers all Education Members the opportunity to award a Professional Encouragement Award to one outstanding student from each design course who not only display outstanding academic results but who also show potential for or demonstrate an active role in the design community and professionalism.  These students are presented with 1 year DIA Graduate Membership to support them as they launch their careers. We are proud to profile each of these graduates below and welcome them to the DIA community.  We look forward to watching your design careers flourish in the years to come.
