A Grande Pinnacle Award will also be presented for the best overall project.
The Tucker Design Awards recognize design professionals whose projects achieve excellence in the use of natural stone in design and construction.
The Industry Recognition Awards celebrate individuals in the stone industry for exemplary contributions to the industry and association over several years. Available awards include the Migliore Award for Lifetime Achievement, Women in Stone Pioneer Award, Natural Stone Craftsman of the Year Award and David Fell Spirit of Service Award.
