The Mission of the AOA Student Design Competition

2015 AOA Student Design Competition Awards

The AOA Student Design Competition mission is to expose college-level art, fashion, and textile design students and professors to the wonders of designing with alpaca fiber. By promoting the competition, we are ensuring the next generation of designers will be entering the workforce with a positive awareness of this amazing luxury fiber that can be utilized throughout their professional lives.

The competition is primarily self-funded through student entry sponsorship and donations to the program by individual alpaca farms and their affiliated organizations and businesses.
