NAHB Student Competition

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. During the convention, students defend their proposals to the judges in front of an audience.

The 2020 competition will take place Jan. 20-22, 2020, during the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas.
