"The Design Educator Awards were initiated to acknowledge and celebrate the individuals who devote their time, energy, experience and passion to those entering the design field. I am sure I speak for many designers when I say that my educators have had a huge role to play in my career. And this is something I have often reflected upon. We are excited to be announcing the call for entries for this year's Awards and look forward to highlighting a new group of nominees who are superstars to their students and colleagues," offers Faron Dawe RGD, Vice President and Chair, Education Committee
