New for 2017

Videos!  We know that some projects just show better in a video than in pictures, so this year we've added an option to include up to a 30 second video showing your project!  Although not required, adding a video to your submission might help show our judges more about your project.  Get your video camera, GoPros and drones out and start making movies!

Our Gold Standard of Excellence Awards go Regional!  The APSP Midwest Chapter is proud to be able to offer entry into our contests for any APSP member who is a part of these Midwest chapters:

Midwest, North Central, Central States, Mid-South, Mid-Tennessee,

Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Michigan

Gold Standard of Excellence 

Design and Construction Awards

Our Gold Standard of Excellence design and construction awards were developed with an interest in showcasing beautiful and creative projects, built by APSP member companies that adhere to accepted construction methods and APSP standards.   Projects must have a certain level of aesthetic appeal, but our focus is not only on beauty, but also on integrity and adherence to standards that can often be overlooked by non APSP members.  The goal of this award is to promote well built, attractive, APSP member projects, whether they are $5,000 projects or $500,000 projects.

To learn more about the awards categories we are offering this year, and what it takes to be a winner, be sure to check out our pages for each category from the 'Contests' menu above, or by using the following links:

Impartial Judges! Our panels of Gold Standard of Excellence judges are all APSP Professionals who judge the contest online.  All of the entries are anonymous when submitted, so our judges won't know who the company was that entered a project.  In addition, entries are assigned to judges who are not part of your local chapter, so there's never a concern that your project may be subject to a local competitors influence.


Judges Needed! As our awards contests are growing, we are always looking for more judges!  If you're an APSP builder, who understands what it means to build to standards, knows about best building practices, and is willing to share their expertise with other APSP members through judging our contests, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page! 

Superior Service

Our Award Contest For Your Superior Service Staff

Beautiful projects won't stay beautiful if they aren't professionally cared for by well trained, certified, APSP technicians.  Our Superior Service Award was developed to recognize those APSP member companies who strive for, and achieve, excellence in all levels of customer service.  Whether serving clients in a retail store, or providing onsite service and repairs, the service industry of the APSP is the heartbeat that keeps our pools, spas, outdoor living and other recreational needs in pristine condition.  The goal of this award is to promote APSP member companies who excel at providing exceptional customer service.

These award events are open exclusively to APSP members from these Midwest chapters:

Midwest, North Central, Central States, Mid-South, Mid-Tennessee,

Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Michigan
