It’s that time of year again, Designers. We need YOUR help with nominations for the 2021 O2 Culture Awards.

The 2021 O2 Culture Awards represent what Origami Owl® holds dear — our mission.  The Culture Awards are the heart of who we are.

We always strive to recognize our OWL-mazing Designers who reflect what’s most important in the Origami Owl culture, and what better time to do that than at our annual O2 Experience!

While we’d LOVE to recognize all of the Designers who are chosen for these awards during convention, the O2 Culture Award recipient DOES NOT have to attend The O2 Experience to receive the award.

Think about a Designer you know (or even yourself!) who exemplifies our culture. Here are the award categories:

  • Love, Inspire, Motivate Award
  • Force For Good® Award
  • Most Inspiring Young Entrepreneur Award
  • Most Inspiring Young Entrepreneur Team Award
  • Heart of O2 Award

Take a look at the O2 Culture Award criteria here and keep reading for how you can nominate someone!
