The entry fee is $100. (You may pay the entry fee here.) Participants must be a NAHB Global Member. If you are not currently a Global Member, you may join now.
Please complete the application in its entirety. The information provided will be used by the judges to select a winner, and for marketing purposes. Award recipients will be announced at the 2018 International Builders' Show in Orlando, Florida.
Judging Criteria & Guidelines
Award recipients will be chosen from the six categories listed in the application form. An independent panel of judges will select the winning products for each category from among the products entered. Judges will be looking for the best combination of design, functionality, innovation and usefulness for builder (i.e., the product saves them money or helps them sell homes), and/or the consumer (i.e., saves them time or money).
