2019 SDC 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, over 400 students in design schools across North America were exposed to working with alpaca in 2019, and 72 entries were received in the final competition. Thanks to the generous material donations of sponsors, the 2019 Student Design Competition was able to provide over 40,000 yards of yarn, 20 pounds of roving, and 50 yards of fabric to the schools participating in the program. The cash donations provided scholarship and travel funds for the finalists to be with us for the 2019 AOA Natural Fiber Extravaganza in Lebanon, Tennessee. Thank you to all our sponsors!
