NAHB has expanded the student competition to graduate students. Students participating in graduate programs may register a team and challenge themselves to identify an opportunity for a large home builder to develop property, build homes and produce a return on investment in a given market, simulating scenarios faced by production home builders.
The 2024 NAHB Student Competition will be held at the 2024 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Feb. 26-28
*As this is a new competition, NAHB requires a minimum of 3 teams to register for this competition
