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.

For the first time in three years, the 2023 NAHB Student Competition for all programs will be exclusively in person, with teams presenting live at the 2023 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Jan 31 - Feb. 2, 2023.
