2018 NAHB Student Competition Now Open

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 over 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.

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 about the webinars, contact Mary Byrnes at NAHB or call the HBACA. The deadline to register is October 13.

The HBACA has two student chapters, one at Shadow Ridge High School in Surprise that sent two teams to the competition last year and ASU, which sent one team. This was the first year that either school had participated in the competition since the formation of their chapters. The HBACA provided funding for both chapters to travel to Orlando to participate.

If you are interested in assisting in reviewing projects for either of the student chapters, please let Connie Wilhelm know and she will get you connected with the chapter advisors.
