Design New England launches award program for mentors
on Tuesday,October 19,2010 21:10
Interior design jobs are expected to grow by 19 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. As demand continues to increase, professionals who are already in the industry who wish to share their knowledge can help build a foundation for the future.
This week, Design New England magazine announced that it has created a new award program for individuals in the interior design, architecture, landscape and building business who use their time to educate others. The "Middies," as it has been titled, will be launched on November 3 at the fourth anniversary bash for the publication.
"We created this award to acknowledge mentoring, which is an integral part of every day in the design community," said Gail Ravgiala, the editor of Design New England. "Great mentors are generous with their time and wisdom, and almost without exception were themselves the beneficiaries of supportive mentors who guided them along the way."
The winners of the award will be announced in January after an advisory panel deliberates on the nominees. Recipients will receive Genoa stone keepsakes for their efforts to help educate the future generation of designers.
