Building Awards

The Annual Building Awards program began in 1980 to encourage better design and construction in the Poconos. The event takes place annually in October and is sponsored by the Pocono Builders Association. Competition for awards is currently limited to membership within the Pocono Builders Association.

Awards of achievement are presented in various categories. The Award of Excellence is the highest honor presented through the program. The Award of Excellence is awarded to a Builder Member and an Associate Member.

Judges are non-partisan professionals from out of the area who volunteer their time to help with this program. During this process, all entries are completely  anonymous for fairness.

New for 2019 - the 2019 DIY Building Awards - this is a new category added to encourage Community involvement. If you (the member) know of a family who has done 80% of the renovation themselves, please invite them to participate.
