Best Thing Ever Award Creative Materials


Best Thing Ever (BTE) is your chapter’s crowning achievement of the past year. What is the project your chapter is most proud of? Tell us. Or better yet, show us. The project of excellence submitted must have been completed during the calendar year. 


Prepare and submit:

  • One PowerPoint/Prezi presentation (8-12 slides) accompanied by a supporting narrative up to 500 words or one 3 - 4 minute video statement uploaded to YouTube* describing the program, CEU, project, or event that best exemplifies your chapter’s Best Thing Ever.

*If uploading a YouTube video, make sure to change your video’s privacy settings to “Unlisted.”

Submission should address the following:

  • Mission – How does the project express and fulfill the mission to advance and promote the profession of commercial interior design?
  • Planning and Goals – Was there a clear business plan or plan of action for the program? What were the learning objectives, volunteer roles, and timeline?
  • Marketing and Communications – How was the program promoted? What graphics and media channels did you use? Who was your target audience?
  • Membership – How was the program attended or engaged with by members? Was it well received? 
  • Financials – What was the project’s budget, actual cost, expenses, sponsorships, and final profit? 


The above is only a list of creative material requirements for the Best Thing Ever Award. You must also submit your Chapter Award Benchmarking Assessment to be eligible for BTE.
