Celebrating the people and projects leading the way to a greener, healthier future for all!


USGBC’s Community Leader Awards honor excellence in high-performance, healthy buildings, environmental stewardship, and community impact, and highlight the green initiatives and achievements of local projects, businesses, and individuals. They recognize owners and project teams for their extra effort to accomplish LEED certification, and celebrate the people and organizations working to create sustainable buildings and communities that positively impact quality of life for all.


USGBC Maryland, National Capital Region, and Virginia are thrilled to announce that the nomination calls for their 2021 Community Leader Awards are now open. Now in its 20th year, A Midsummer Night’s Green has long been one of the premier networking celebrations of the MD-DC-VA region. USGBC Maryland, National Capital Region, and Virginia are excited to co-host this year’s event to honor and showcase the award winning projects in the most active green building market in the country.


Awards will be given in multiple categories across all three communities respectively. To be eligible in most categories, projects must be located within the USGBC Maryland, National Capital Region, or Virginia territories and have received LEED certification between January 1, 2019 and May 1, 2021. Please note, entrants into each Community awards program category will only compete against other projects within that Community. During the awards ceremony, awards will likely be presented by category and have one winner per Community – E.G. one BD +C  project from Maryland, the National Capital Region, and Virginia respectively.
