NARI invites its contractor members across the nation to compete for the prestigious Contractor of the Year (CotY) Awards in recognition of their achievements throughout the year. Companies from one-person shops to the largest remodeling firms report that winning a CotY Award is a major factor in enhancing their image within the industry as well as the buying public. CotY Awards are presented at the local, regional and national levels. Miami Valley NARI's Awards program mirrors the regional and national program, so once you have put your entry together, you can easily submit it for regional and national recognition.
