SportsField Management is now accepting applications for its second annual Field Builder Award, which recognizes landscape contractors around the country who renovate sports fields.  The winner will be announced and honored at the American Sports Builders Association technical meeting in December at the awards reception and dinner.

Stacy Allen, associate publisher of SportsField Management says, “As an industry resource for innovative techniques and best practices content, we want to recognize individuals who set the bar in innovative sports field construction.”

Natural or artificial playing surfaces that have been recently renovated with at least one full season of play are eligible for consideration.

Editor in Chief Rob Meyer notes, “It’s important for us to choose a winner who strives to advance the industry not only through construction, but through service as well. That’s why one of our qualifying requirements is that the company must be committed to some sort of volunteer effort. “

The winner of the inaugural Field Builder Award in 2014 was Sports Turf Company, Inc., which has built playing fields on all levels, from municipal to professional and Olympic standards.

Dan Wright, vice president of SportsTurf Company said it best in an interview after he received last year’s award. “It’s about treating people the way you want to be treated and giving them the product they want.”
