Each year, APSP honors the most stunning examples of workmanship, creativity and beauty in the pool and spa industry with the annual Awards of Excellence. Thinking about submitting one of your projects for consideration? Act fast — submissions close June 30.

"Why should I enter?" you may wonder. Several reasons. First: the more submissions APSP receives, the more they can promote the benefits of the pool and spa lifestyle to consumers, which means everyone wins.

Second: Winners will be featured in AQUA Magazine, so if you’ve ever hoped you’d see your project published, this is your chance.

Third: If can mean big business for you. Adding plaques to your store walls establishes you as a reliable, trustworthy company, which can convince more customers to sign with you. “It’s a very important tool for us. It really gives our company instant credibility,” says Kelly Caviness (Caviness Landscape Design, Edmond, Okla.).
