The NAHB Custom/Small Build Student Competition exposes students to a small scale residential construction project from concept to closing. Teams identify a home building opportunity in a specific geographic area, focusing on the best opportunity for a small builder to be successful and grow their business.

The 2023 NAHB Student Competition for four-year programs will be held live in person at the 2023 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 31 - Feb. 2, 2023.
