Spartanburg, S.C. — Milliken is proud to announce their sponsorship of the IIDA Educator of the Year Award, which celebrates excellence in leadership of an Interior Design educator.

The IIDA Educator of the Year Award was created to honor a full-time instructor who showcases exceptional accomplishments and commitments to Interior Design education. The recipient of this award will receive a $10,000 cash award and a complimentary 2013 IIDA Membership. 

“Interior Design educators share our passion for the industry by dedicating their time, love and energy to teach design students who will be our future leaders,” says Barbara Haaksma, vice president of design and marketing of Milliken’s global floor covering division. “The role these often underrecognized individuals play in shaping students’ professional lives is enormous – and as a result, we are honored to be part of the IIDA Educator of the Year Award.”

Any Interior Design faculty member or student enrolled in an Interior Design program may submit a nomination and a full time instructor may nominate him/herself. The candidate must be a current full-time instructor with a minimum of five years of experience in a post-secondary program of Interior Design education at any university or accredited school of Interior Design. Membership in IIDA is recommended, but not required to be eligible for this award.

Applications may be submitted online through April 10, 2012. The candidate selected as the Educator of the Year will be notified in mid-May and must be available to accept the award on June 10 at the IIDA Annual Meeting in Chicago.
