Not only is the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) the largest annual light construction show in the world, it serves as a showcase for the next generation of home builders as hundreds of young people face off in the annual NAHB Student Competition. NAHB's 2020 Student Competition featured 60 teams that competed during IBS 2020 in Las Vegas, Jan. 20-22. This year's competition included 39 four-year programs, 14 associate programs and seven secondary programs. The event was generously sponsored by Beazer Homes, Clayton Properties Group, Consort Homes, DR Horton, K. Hovnanian and Toll Brothers. The winners were announced in a ceremony last week at IBS. See below for all of the winners, including the Rookie of the Year awards, which honor schools making their first competition appearance.
