Student Chapter Awards

The ASID Student Chapter Awards (SCA) recognize achievement among ASID student chapters and the leaders who enrich the ASID student member experience. Chapters may enter the SCA in two categories: ASID Student Chapter of the Year and ASID Student Volunteer of the Year.

Showcase how you and your chapter are making a difference by submitting to the annual Student Chapter Awards!   

ASID Student Chapter of the Year  
The ASID Student Chapter of the Year award proves that team work makes the dream work, honoring chapters who came together to have an impact on their program or on campus. Share your goals, journey and outcomes and highlight your awesome achievements to our jury!  

ASID Student Volunteer of the Year  
The ASID Student Volunteer of the Year recognizes a student leader who has had an outstanding impact on their chapter. We want to honor your diligence and dedication! Show off the impressive effects of your hard work and share how you’ve helped your chapter over the past year.   

For each award, a jury of leading designers and national volunteers will examine how each student and chapter has made a difference. Winners will be honored by the jury and their peers at SCALE 2022!
