IDEA R. Tim Phillips Award

Purpose: Every fall the Illinois Design Educators Association solicits nominations for selection of one of the best Illinois drafting educators. The tradition and award began in 1989 after the IDEA’s sudden loss of fellow drafting educator R. Tim Phillip to cancer. Tim would be proud to know that he received this award posthumously (*) in 1989 from the IDEA membership, just as those who have received it have been proud to follow his lead. Thank you Tim, and thank you to all the IDEA members who take the time to nominate one of their own!
