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.

The 2025 NAHB Student Competition will be held live at the 2025 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Feb. 24-26, 2025.
