The awards recognize products designed for the commercial landscape and irrigation markets and are judged by the EPG Brand Acceleration staff. Judges take into account innovation, marketability and application within the market as criteria for the awards.

Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity's purpose is to offer "a hand up, not a hand out" to its residents struggling with rent or mortgage payment exceeding 30% of their income, according to the release, and almost 20% of North Dakotans live in poverty.

Those wishing to attend should RSVP at www.rrvhabitat.com or by e-mailing executive director Marisa Sauceda at marisa@rrvhabitat.com.
