The HEARTHSTONE BUILDER Humanitarian Awards are given each year to builders who demonstrate a lifetime commitment to public service. The winning builder and charity will be recognized in BUILDER magazine and at a gala awards event during the International Builders' Show in February 2012. In addition, a cash award will be donated to the designated charity of the winning builder.


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 not-for-profit charity or community service organization. The winner and their charity will receive coverage in Builder magazine. A gala awards event will be held in the winner’s honor during the 2012 International Builders’ Show.


A panel of industry judges will select the winner who has made the most significant contribution to public service over their lifetime. The judges’ selection of the award winner will be final.
