GENERAL CATEGORY: We strive to find the BEST projects from the entries we receive and then categorize them. We feel this gives each entrant the best possible chance to become a finalist as they are not attempting to fit their project into a category - they are simply showing their best work.

  • Grand opening or first occupancy between January 2015 and December 2016.
  • Custom, production, remodeling/restoration, community and multifamily projects are all eligible. (Project can be any size)
  • Third party certification (e.g., LEED, Energy Star, Environments for Living, etc.) is NOT an entry requirement.

MAINSTREAM GREEN CATEGORY: We continue our search for the most energy-efficient homes! To be eligible for this category your project must meet the following criteria:

  • Grand opening or first occupancy between January 2015 and December 2016.
