"We are proud to help raise money that will provide scholarships for exhibit design students at Bemidji State," said Jennifer Hermanson, President, UMEDPA. "Many of these students will go on to work for UMEDPA member companies, so it is very rewarding to help in the early stages of their careers in the exhibit design industry."

The Bemidji State program educates exhibit designers pursuing careers at companies producing trade show exhibits and events, and it serves as the only undergraduate degree in exhibit design in the U.S.
