The annual NAHB Student Competition is one of the highlights of the International Builders' Show (IBS). 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. Due to the ongoing pandemic and school travel restrictions, the 2021 student competition will be completely virtual.

The 2020 competition was held Jan. 20-22 at IBS 2020 in Las Vegas.
