The awards are to be presented Friday, October 29th at LightFair at 11:30 a.m. in the Special Events Area (booth 1474.)   In addition, at a separate date, the judges will conduct a deep dive interview allowing the designers to describe the jobs in detail.

Mary Beth Gotti, Telsa Committee Chair, stated, “We realize that while many are reviewing their plans to attend LightFair, we will be conducting a live awards presentation and abiding by all safety protocols.” NLB Chair, Howard Lewis said, “This year we are very excited to honor the Tesla Awardees in person at LightFair as well as learn the details of these award-winning projects in an online format.  This hybrid format is truly the best way to showcase these beautiful jobs.”
