Student Industrial Design Society of America

IDSA Student Chapters enjoy the benefits of using the IDSA identity and are eligible to participate in the Society's annual Student Merit Award (SMA) competition. In addition, student chapters have an automatic connection to the profession chapters closest to them as both are collectively grouped under the respective IDSA Districts. This structure is exceptionally important when the SMA competition advances from the school to the District level at the IDSA District Design Conferences held annually during the spring.
