Nominees must demonstrate strong and outstanding leadership and action in the cause of green building as a vital part of the local, regional or state community. Awards for projects will be given in the categories of new construction, adaptive re-use/renovation, residential and an overall Juror’s Favorite.

In conjunction with the awards event, the JRGBC will host a large number of displays to showcase products, services and companies that participate in green building. Tickets are $50 and are open to the public. To register, call Megan Miller at 440-0599 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
