To acknowledge our members for their craftsmanship, the NWFA has developed multiple recognition opportunities.
WOOD FLOOR OF THE YEAR AWARDS
The NWFA’s Wood Floor of the Year (WFOY) awards were developed to encourage and recognize innovative craftsmanship and design in wood flooring installations. Since the program began in 1990, more than 300 awards have been presented to NWFA member companies throughout the world. Learn more about the Wood Floor of the Year contest here.
