The annual NAHB Student Competition, formally the Residential Construction Management Competition, is one of the highlights of the International Builders' Show. The competition gives students the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to a real construction company by completing a management project/proposal. Proposals are submitted to a group of construction company executives who act as judges. During the convention, students defend their proposals to the judges in front of an audience.
Registration for the 2018 competition will open on Sept. 5 2017.
