The project entry forms are due by Tuesday December 22, 2015. Final project submissions are due by Wednesday January 06, 2016.
Any project completed after January 01, 2012, in the East Tennessee region is eligible. Acceptable projects include new construction, remodeling, interiors, rehabilitation, preservation, urban design projects, civic improvements, regional plans, environmental programs, and redevelopment projects.

2015 Green Light Awards Project Submission Form
Submissions for Green Projects will be accepted via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). After we receive your entry form and fee, we will provide you with both PowerPoint and InDesign templates, as well as accompanying instructions. To maintain consistency and fairness, modifications to these templates will not be accepted. Final projects must be submitted in portable document format (.pdf) or powerpoint (.ppt) format. Please note that project authorship must remain concealed. If authorship is revealed on any images, plans or narrative, the entry will be disqualified.
The following will be required for integration into your final submission:
Project Information: Include summary statement, detailed summary, area and cost, date of completion, project code number.
Drawings and Images: Include images, plans, details, diagrams, or sketches as required to fully describe the sustainable qualities of the built work. Clear communication of the sustainable attributes of the project generally requires a variety of image types and drawings. Be sure to indicate solar orientation on drawings.
*Identification Information: Include name and location of project, owner/client, architect(s), designers, landscape architect, consultants, general contractor, photographer and all other team members. Also include the project Code Number.
*This information will not be seen by the jury and will only be used to identify winners and assist with award presentations. The entire project team will be recognized at the awards ceremony.
Each project will be judged according to its own merits and will be evaluated in terms of specific constraints, opportunities addressed, the quality and rigor of sustainability integration, and the “triple bottom line”—i.e., providing holistic solutions that simultaneously address environmental, social, and economic criteria.
Green Project Awards will be decided by an independent, impartial group of USGBC Board members from a chapter within the southeast region. Winners will be announced and awards presented at the 2015 Green Light Awards on January 21, 2016.
Project Entry forms and fee of $100 per project must be received by December 22, 2015. Final project presentations must be submitted by midnight January 06, 2016. Please send completed forms to email@example.com.
