The AIA Maine COTE Awards program recognizes exemplary and innovative built projects that establish a standard of over-all design excellence that creatively integrates sustainable design strategies, demonstrating their benefits while educating and inspiring the profession and the public.

  • Submissions due on November 20, 2015
  • Jury review on December 2, 2015
  • Winners announced at the December Annual Meeting (date and location tba).

Entries are welcomed and encouraged from both established and new practitioners and designers, and from small firms and large.
  • Projects must be built and completed within the past 5 years.
