The HEARTHSTONE BUILDER Humanitarian Awards are given each year to home builders who demonstrate a lifetime commitment to public service. Recent honorees include Shea Homes' Bert Selva and Bryson Garbett of Garbett Homes.

Nominees must be for-profit, single-family builders or lot developers. They may be individuals or companies, employees or owners. Builders may nominate themselves or be nominated by other builders, charities, non-profit organizations, or government organizations they have helped. Special recognition will be given to employees of building firms, in addition to owners.

A cash award will be donated to the winning builder's non-profit charity or community service organization. The winner and their charity will receive national coverage in BUILDER magazine and in our newsletters and our website.

Deadline for nominations is Jan. 12, 2015. Click here to download the entry form.
