Reggie Awards


Since 1968, local builders have coveted the Reggie AwardSM statue which honors the best homes in the Parade of HomesSM by recognizing excellence in design and construction. All fall Parade of Homes entries can be judged (except for previous Reggie-winning homes). Winners will take home that coveted Reggie statue to display in their office or model.



All builders in good standing with BATC-Housing First Minnesota are eligible to enter that have a home in the 2019 fall Parade of Homes.



The Parade of Homes price supplied will be used to assign the entry to a judging category. Parade of Homes price includes the price of the lot.
