Indoor airPLUS Leader Awards

Applications for 2018 are now available. New this year:"Leader of the Year" and an award ceremony at the 2018 EEBA Summit.

Indoor airPLUS Leader Award PlaqueThis award was created to recognize builder and Rater partners who not only construct and verify Indoor airPLUS qualified homes, but also actively utilize the Indoor airPLUS brand--through the use of sales, marketing, and educational tools--to educate homebuyers, trade professionals, and allied stakeholders about the importance of enhanced indoor air quality protections.


The Indoor airPLUS Leader Awards will be publicly announced in September 2018 and will be formally presented at the EEBA High Performance Home Summit, October 16-18, 2018 in San Diego, California.

EPA will also be presenting a new award this year--the Indoor airPLUS Leader of the Year Award--to just one outstanding builder and Rater partner, selected from the pool of Leader Award winners. The builder winner may be selected from any of the builder categories. The Builder and Rater Leaders of the Year will be chosen based on their achievements with Indoor airPLUS over the previous year, as evidenced by the quality of their Leader Award application. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your great work at a nationally recognized conference for high performance building! These two Leader of the Year winners will be announced in-person during the award ceremony at the EEBA Summit.
