A housing development partnership that benefits post-secondary students as well as community programs in Kamloops is once again up for a prestigious award.
The Canadian Home Builders' Association of British Columbia announced on Friday that the Kamloops Training House is up for a Georgie Award in the Best Public-Private Partnership category.
The Central Interior branch of CHBA partners with the Thompson Rivers University trades school each year, mentoring students who take on the task of building a home full of modern amenities and technologies.
The house is then raffled off in the Kamloops YMCA/YWCA Dream Home Lottery fundraiser.
The 2013 dream home was built in Dufferin. Its total size is 3,000 square feet and is valued at $588,000.
The Georgie Awards showcase the best of B.C.'s residential construction industry, whether home builder, renovator or marketer.
Finalists and winners will be celebrated at a black-tie awards gala with featured guests and entertainment on Feb. 1 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.
