Results of Young Designers’ Scholarship Competition
This year thirty-one students entered the Young Designers’ Scholarship Competition, a program for high school students interested in drafting, architecture or home building. The competition’s three judges were local architecture and building professionals. Ten local high school students and two high school drafting instructors were awarded a total of $35,000 from the Tidewater Builders Association Scholarship Foundation during its annual academic awards program and Young Designers’ Scholarship Competition. Six scholarships were awarded for academic excellence, community service and financial need. Four students also received awards from the annual Young Designers’ Scholarship Competition, and two drafting instructors each received a $500 school grant. Instructors Eric Nestor of Oscar Smith High School, Chesapeake, and Jennifer Renne of Landstown High School, Virginia Beach, each won a $500 school grant to assist their drafting programs with necessary supplies and equipment. Now in its 53rd year, the TBA Scholarship Foundation has awarded 493 scholarships and more than $1.85 million since 1965. TBA will continue to provide scholarship funding during the 2018Read More →

Polar Plunge® 2018
At HBA, we are crazy about serving our community. So crazy, in fact, that our team voluntarily and enthusiastically took a frigid dip in the Atlantic Ocean this February to benefit Special Olympics of Virginia. This is the 13th year in a row that the HBA family joined the crowd of thousands who were crazy enough to jump into the Atlantic for fun! We had a great time on Saturday, even with the temperature barely getting out of the twenties. Each year, we pick a different character or icon to dress up as. This year, we elected to dress up as dominos! HBA raised $11,008.00 and broke our fundraising goal set this year. Our own Mike Ross, our top fundraiser, was the #8 Top Individual Fundraiser for the event, raising over $5,400. Overall, the 2018 Polar Plunge in Virginia Beach raised over $1 million for Special Olympics Virginia. All of us here at HBA want to thank all of our sponsors, who helped make our fundraising goal a reality!Read More →
