2021 National Design Awards
Celebrate the Power of Design
First Lady Jill Biden serves as the Honorary Patron for this year’s National Design Awards. Established in 2000 as a project of the White House Millennium Council, the National Design Awards bring national recognition to the ways in which design enriches everyday life.
Cooper Hewitt connects the public with award winners through free virtual talks, workshops, resources, and more throughout National Design Month in October and beyond. These programs are made possible by design advocates like you. Thank you for your support.
National Design Awards programming is made possible with major support from Facebook, Inc., Shelby and Frederick Gans, Helen and Edward Hintz, The Hirsch Family Foundation, IBM Corporation, and Crystal and Chris Sacca.
Generous support is provided by Kim and Mac Schuessler and Lisa Roberts and David Seltzer.
Support is also provided by Agnes Gund, Alexandra and Paul Herzan, Jamestown LP, Margery and Edgar Masinter, Richard M. Smith and Dr. Soon-Young Yoon, and Esme Usdan and James Snyder.
