  • Building and general construction projects
  • Water quality, restoration, and erosion control projects
  • Defensible space and forest health projects
  • Public/Environmental Improvement Program projects
  • Sustainability actions and projects

The nomination period is open until June 18.

For three decades, the Best in the Basin awards program has recognized property owners, contractors, architects, and planners whose work and investment stand out as brilliant examples of environmental design in the Tahoe Basin. For information about past winners, visit

Projects completed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2020 can be nominated for consideration by the judging panel this summer.
