AND COMMUNITY LEADER AWARDS
Washington, D.C. | July 2022
Celebrating the people and projects leading the way to a greener, healthier future for all!
USGBC National Capital Region's Community Leader Awards celebrate excellence in high-performance, healthy design and building, environmental stewardship, and community impact, and serve to highlight the green building initiatives of USGBC NCR community projects, businesses and local members. They recognize building owners and project teams for their extra effort to accomplish LEED certification for their buildings, and they honor the people who are working to create better buildings and better lives for all in the DC metro area.
Project awards will be given in multiple categories. In order to qualify in most categories, projects must have been LEED-certified between January 1, 2020 and May 16, 2022. Projects must be located in the USGBC NCR community territory. There is a $130 application fee. Projects that received a USGBC NCR award in 2020 or 2021 are not eligible to apply in the category they already won, but are welcome to apply in another category.
Winners will be announced at our annual A Midsummer Night's Green award celebration, which will take place in-person in the DC metro area in July 2022. Registration will open in May. Please see below for more information.
