The National Lighting Bureau’s (NLB) 23rd Annual High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program is now open to anyone who had some role in influencing modification of an existing lighting system or development of a new one. Submissions should document how the new lighting contributed to improved productivity or increased retail sales.

All persons who enter the awards program will receive a hand-inscribed certificate of participation. If an entry is developed into a case history, the person submitting the information will serve as a bylined author of a magazine article.

To be eligible for consideration in the 2002 High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program, the project involved must have been completed on or after January 1, 1999. Entries must be received no later than October 31, 2002. Visit for more information on entering.

High-benefit lighting is a term used by NLB to designate electric illumination that is designed to spur significant bottom-line savings.
