Nominations are open to all communities in the Big South region, including USGBC National Capital Region (USGBC NCR).
The D.C. metro area has long been an international leader in green building. In 2022, Maryland and Virginia ranked 5th and 8th respectively on USGBC's prestigious list of Top 10 States for LEED, with significant amounts of LEED work taking place in the counties of southern Maryland and northern Virginia included in the National Capital Region. As a federal territory, the District of Columbia does not appear on the official top 10 list of states, but it consistenlty leads the nation in LEED-certified square footage per capita. In fact, there is more LEED-certified square footage per capita in D.C. than anywhere else in the world!
Awards will be given in multiple categories. In order to apply for a USGBC National Capital Region award, projects must be located within the USGBC NCR community territory, regardless of where the nominator or project owner are located. Projects that received a USGBC award in the last three years are not eligible. Project teams who have won awards in the past three years are welcome to submit new projects.
Award recipients will be announced and honored at USGBC NCR's annual A Midsummer Night's Green celebration, whic will take place in July 2023.
