The MOAs - Enabling Future Designs

Model One Awards

The annual Model One Awards (MOAs) embodies the spirit of design and innovation. The prestigious MOAs recognize industrial design students for excellence in product design. The MOAs offer students from design schools across the country the opportunity to showcase their skills, creativity, and originality.
 
The awards also give universities and design schools a platform to promote their design programs and gain visibility as leading design institutions.
