NAHB Student Competition

The NAHB Student Competition, formerly the Residential Construction Management Competition, is one of the highlights at the annual NAHB International Builders’ Show. The competition gives students the opportunity to apply the skills learned in the classroom to a real construction project by completing a management proposal.  The proposals are submitted to a group of construction company executives who act as judges. During the convention, students present and defend their proposals to the judges in front of an audience. Presentations take place at the annual International Builders' Show at various locations across the country.
