The Excelsior Award honors a project performed by a company who has been a member less than two years and demonstrates excelsior (striving higher) qualities.

The Sweepstakes Award honors those projects deemed most outstanding in their respective categories. Two such awards will be presented: One in the installation categories and another in the maintenance categories.
