The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) named the winners of the ASID Student Portfolio Competition as part of SCALE: The ASID National Student Summit.

Sponsored by Benjamin Moore, the competition generates the best collection of student design in the nation and selects winners and finalists based on conceptual thought, content and context of submitted work. For 2020, the jury selected 13 finalists and three winners:
