Entry fees are $175 per entry for all categories.

Judges are selected from across the nation, are among the most creative and successful individuals within the home building industry, and represent the many disciplines contributing to new home sales and marketing, as well as geographic diversity. Judges are ineligible for entry. Judges reserve the right to eliminate any category where the quality of work does not warrant a winner. All decisions of the judges are final. Judging for 2021 will be done remotely due to current travel restrictions.
CHANGES TO CATEGORIES OR ENTRIES
HBA staff reserves the right to combine or eliminate any category or categories due to insufficient entries. Additionally, the HBA reserves the right to create new categories should the MAX judges determine a situation warrants such action. Judges may also re-categorize any entry, if in their opinion, it has been entered into the wrong category, or if the entry is better suited to another category. Special awards may be presented at the judges’ discretion.
