Natural Stone Institute Calls for 2022 Awards Entries

The 2022 entry period for the Natural Stone Institute Awards program is now open. A call for entries has been announced for the Pinnacle Awards, Industry Recognition Awards and scholarship program. The Pinnacle Awards honor projects whose beauty, creativity, ingenuity and craftsmanship exemplify professional mastery in the use of natural stone for commercial and residential applications.

New for 2022, a kitchen and bath category will join the existing Pinnacle Award categories: Commercial Interior, Commercial Exterior, Renovation/Restoration, Residential Interior/Exterior (Single and Multi-Family), Architectural Carving/Lettering/Sculpture and Public Landscapes/Parks/Memorials. A Grande Pinnacle Award, sponsored by Marmomac, will be presented to the best overall project.

The Industry Recognition Awards celebrate individuals in the stone industry for exemplary contributions to the industry and association over a period of time. Available awards include the Migliore Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Women in Stone Pioneer Award and the Natural Stone Craftsman of the Year Award. Two scholarships, the Natural Stone Scholarship, and the Women in Stone Empowerment Scholarship, are available to aspiring professionals interested in careers within the stone industry.

Pinnacle and individual award recipients will be celebrated at the annual Natural Stone Institute Awards Ceremony at TISE in Las Vegas in 2023. All awards are open to Natural Stone Institute members. The submission deadline for the 2022 awards is May 20, 2022.
