- Education: College/University
- Residential: Single Family
- Residential: Multi Family
- Block (projects must be at least 65% block)
- Lighweight Block (projects must use lightweight CMU)
- LEED (projects must be LEED certified)

Awards will be presented to the mason contractor, general contractor, architect, masonry supplier, and building owner.
