The Official Online Weekly Newspaper of NAHB
Entries are being accepted for NAHB’s 2011 Best in American Living Awards (BALA), the foremost residential design competition in the country. Builders, interior designers, architects, land planners, remodelers, developers and marketing and real estate professionals are invited to enter.
The entry deadline is Sept. 1.
The competition includes 39 categories — recognizing excellence in custom and spec homes; attached, detached and multifamily homes; affordable housing; remodeling; rental developments; communities; interior design; green homes and communities and more.
For more than 25 years, the BALA awards have fostered design excellence in the building industry and highlighted those builders, architects, interior designers, remodelers, developers and land planners who have achieved superior levels of creativity and innovation.
Submit Entries Online
As with last year’s competition, award entries must now be submitted online electronically — and hard-copy notebooks are no longer required.
Additionally, several award categories have been combined, and additional categories have been added for remodeling.
Winning entries will be announced at the NAHB International Builders' Show in Orlando in January and will also be featured in Nation's Building News Online.
Entries are due by Sept. 1.
