Leading Suppliers Spark Innovation, Honor Ingenuity

Filed in Awards, Committees and Councils, IBS by on September 21, 2016 0 Comments

For more than 50 years, members of NAHB’s Leading Suppliers Council have helped raise the bar of innovation and efficiency in home building.

Examples of these advancements can be seen throughout each edition of The New American Home. Every year, LSC members get first crack at the opportunity to have their products featured on a worldwide stage during the show home’s unveiling at the NAHB International Builders’ Show.

During the 2017 IBS in Orlando, NAHB will officially honor an LSC member for his or her product ingenuity with the first-ever Spark Award. The winner will be announced and recognized as part of a media event at The New American Home.

LSC Spark Award entries are being accepted now through Oct. 30. Applicants must be a current NAHB Leading Supplier Council member and show how their product or solution is:

  • Fully launched (available on the market for at least one year, but no more than three years at the time of submission)
  • Clearly distinct from all other items on the market
  • Substantially modified or adaptable (for product extensions)
  • Notably beneficial to the building industry

Judges will score each entry based on a point scale, much of which will compare the market performance of the product or solution.

Visit nahb.org/sparkaward for more details and to submit an entry. You can also contact Jackie Barnes at 800-368-5242 x8247 for additional information.
