Student Awards


This annual program, the RGD's longest-running, distributes cash prizes, supported by industry partners, in recognition of student excellence. The program has distributed over $375,000 to design students since its inception in 1998.


Our 2023 Student Awards deadline has passed. Judging will take place over the summer. Student entrants will be informed in late August/early September. Results will be announced sometime in September. The 2024 Student Awards will launch in early January 2024.
