The 30th annual High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program, sponsored by Silver Spring, Md.-based National Lighting Bureau (NLB), is underway. The program is open to virtually anyone associated with a High-Benefit Lighting installation, such as owners, designers, facility or property managers, contractors, manufacturers' representatives, utility employees, and users.

The deadline for entries is October 31. Entry applications should document how modification of an existing lighting system or development of a new lighting system improved productivity, increased retail sales, or achieved any of the many other bottom-line benefits of high-benefit lighting.
