2016 Student Design Competition Sponsors

The AOA Student Design Competition (SDC) is funded through donations from alpaca farms, businesses, affiliates, and organizations who believe in the mission of the program. Through the generous donations of yarn, roving, fabric, and cash to the SDC, over 400 students in design schools across North America were exposed to working with alpaca in 2016, and 82 entries were sponsored in the final competition. Thanks to the generous material donations of sponsors, the 2016 Student Design Competition was able to provide over 60,000 yards of yarn, 20 pounds of roving, and 20 yards of fabric to the schools participating in the program. The cash donations provided the scholarships and travel funds for the finalists to be with us for the 2016 AOA National Fleece Conference. Thank you to all our sponsors!
