Aided by NAHB’s education and advocacy efforts, green and high-performance building have quickly found their way into the residential mainstream. For that reason, the Best in Green Awards have been incorporated into many of NAHB’s other award programs, including the Best in American Living Awards, The Nationals, the 50+ Housing Awards and many others. Winners of any green or sustainable award in any of these other awards programs are automatically entered into contention for a Best in Green Award.
In addition, NAHB honors the Young Green Professional of the Year: the home builder or remodeler under 40 who among those carving a path to better sustainable building practices. Both awards are given during the International Builders’ Show.
