This year, we’re looking for a new IIDA Changemaker. To align with the most recent IIDA membership campaign, the IIDA Changemaker Award will be representative of your campus center’s crowning achievement of the past year.

Enter your Campus Center for the opportunity to be recognized by your chapter at a locally hosted event, be featured in the next issue of QUAD, the IIDA Student Member newsletter, and have the chance to win the $1,000 prize for Campus Center of the Year.

How to Apply:

Why Should You Enter Your Campus Center?

  • Be recognized by your peers and members as a campus center of excellence with an IIDA Changemaker Award.
  • Be featured in the next issue of QUAD and on IIDA.org for your accomplishments.
  • Have the chance to win the $1,000 prize for Campus Center of the Year.

The IIDA Changemaker Award is your chapter’s crowning achievement of the past year. What project left the biggest impact on your local design community? Tell us. Or better yet, show us. The project of excellence submitted must have been completed during the 2021 calendar year.


Prepare and submit:

  • One (1) PowerPoint/Prezi presentation (8-12 slides)
  • Supporting narrative up to 500 words or one 3-4 minute video statement uploaded to YouTube,* describing the program, CEU, project, or event that best exemplifies why your chapter was a changemaker in 2021.
  • One (1) sentence blurb that best encapsulates all you’ve done to be a Changemaker in 2021.

*If uploading a YouTube video, make sure to change your video’s privacy settings to “Unlisted.”

Submission should address the following:

  • Mission: What was the mission of your program, event, or resource and how did that project impact the local design community and your members?
  • Planning and Goals: Was there a clear business plan or plan of action for the program? What were the learning objectives, volunteer roles, and timeline? How did you measure the success and impact of your program
  • Marketing and Communications: How was the program promoted? What graphics and media channels did you use? Who was your target audience? How did you reach audiences you have typically not engaged?
  • Membership: How was the program attended or engaged with by members? Was it well received? Did it help members be better designers, volunteers, or community leaders?
  • Financials: What was the project’s budget, actual cost, expenses, sponsorships, and final profit?
  • Changemaker: Were there any specific volunteers or leaders who led this changemaker effort and deserve an extra bit of recognition?
