Judging & Prizes

Stage One – Regional:

The first stage of the NZIOB National Student Awards is assessed by regional judging groups, who evaluate nominations and award a $500 cash prize to the top student in each of the four categories: Design, Engineering, Management and Trades.

Stage Two – National:

The winners of each category at the Regional Awards progress to the National Awards, where the nominees are assessed by a new national judging group. The national winner of each of the four categories is invited to attend the NZIOB’s annual New Zealand Building Industry Awards Ceremony & Gala Dinner at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland. The Supreme Winner of the NZIOB National Student Awards will be announced at the Gala Dinner.
