2018 NAHB Student Competition Now Open

September 21, 2017

Entries are now open for NAHB Student Chapter members for the annual Student Competition, which takes place at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando this January.

For more than two decades, this national program — formerly known as the Residential Construction Management Competition — has given thousands of high school and college students the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to a real construction management project or proposal.

The panel of judges who will review the proposals consists of construction company executives. During the 2018 IBS, students will defend their proposals to the judges in front of an audience.

The National Housing Endowment can provide money for NAHB Student Chapter members to help offset travel expenses. Chapters must apply by Oct. 31 to be considered.

Webinars to help explain the competition process will be held this fall for students and — new this year — for their coaches, as well.

For additional information, visit NAHBnow.com. The deadline to register for the competition is Oct. 13.
