Reggie Award

Reggie AwardSM

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 who enter are encouraged to attend the Building Industry Gala (BIG) Night in October at Mystic Lake Center. You'll be able to accept your award alongside all of our other big winners, in front of the entire BATC-Housing First Minnesota membership.

Builders: Encourage your Associate Partners to enter the Trillium Awards!
