Chapter Improvement Contest Winners
The Triangle Building & Housing Corporation (TBHC) Improvement Contest is designed to encourage our undergraduate Triangle chapters and members to enhance their fraternity property or a local community property in a substantial and beneficial way through physical improvement.
Chapters and colonies are eligible to enter the following four categories:
- Best Interior Project – an improvement made to any interior portion of a fraternity occupied property.
- Best Exterior Project – an improvement made to any exterior portion of a fraternity occupied property, including building exterior, landscaping, patios, porches, etc.
- Best “Green” Project – an improvement made to improve energy efficiency, reduce utility costs, or otherwise results in a positive impact on the environment for a fraternity occupied property.
- Best Community Project – an improvement made to any housing-oriented property in the local community through which the project serves a philanthropic purpose. For example only, improvements to a university-owned “President’s House”, a homeless shelter, Habitat for Humanity house, a historic home maintained by a historical society, etc. Entry in this category is reserved for chapters who do not have a dedicated fraternity property.
The winner of the above category wins a cash prize of $600. A Best Overall Project is chosen and the winner is awarded $1,200. Chapters are able to take home prize money in an individual category along with best overall for a maximum award of $1,800.

Purdue – Best Overall Project ($1,200 prize)
