Nominate someone you’ve worked with who is a Green Giant – the nomination is easy. Awards will be presented at our annual meeting in December.

GREEN GIANTS AWARDS

Since 2013, the Green Giants Award Program has been honoring the work of trades people, educators, and owners/program directors who help build, teach about, envision and fund the green buildings in Hampshire, Hampden, Franklin, and Berkshire counties.

This program is intentionally distinct from other building design awards in its attempt to honor a wider range of participants behind the sustainable building movement in our region.

The program is held every two years, in odd-numbered years. It alternates with the WMAIA Design Awards program, which is held every two years in even-numbered years.
