2018 CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence

CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence

Competition Now Open!

The 2018 CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence is now accepting entries.

Our Awards Platform is designed for you to create an account and jump right in. Within the platform, you'll find all of the information you need.

We highly recommend that you go to our awards platform and create your User Account / Membership Profile before doing anything else. Read through all of the information provided in the About Menu (most which has been copied to this page below). Don't wait until right before the November 10th deadline to create an account, as you'll want to familiarize yourself with the entry platform first. It's easy to use, but you don't want to add stress!


Specific category content

Looking for specific category content (i.e. what questions to answer, what you'll need to upload)? Just jump right in to our awards platform and start an entry! You can always delete it, or change the category to see what other categories require. Alternately, this year we've provided Word Entry forms, which can be found on the awards platform or below under "Entry Forms." They will tell you what questions you'll need to answer, how many and what kind of images you'll need to upload, and if you'll need a floor plan, site plan, homeowner permission form, etc.
