You did the hard work, now get the reward!

We celebrate the pride you have in your home with our annual awards for both home and garden.


If there’s one thing we’ve learned as an organization over the past 20+ years, it’s that no matter where you land on the map geographically, socioeconomically, or ethnically, what connects all of our 22,000+ members is the pride you take in your home. The Chicago Bungalow Association wants to celebrate the pride with you through our annual prized awards:

  • Annual Driehaus Bungalow Awards

  • Annual Bungalow Garden Contest

Driehaus Foundation Bungalow Awards

Created in 2005 by the Chicago Bungalow Association with the generous support of The Driehaus Foundation, the Driehaus Foundation Bungalow Awards is our annual juried competition honoring the creativity and efforts of homeowners like you.​ Be inspired by past winners, and submit your own home improvement project for a chance to win up to $1,000 in 7 awards categories, including interior and exterior renovations, restoration, landscape design, and more!

Bungalow Garden Contest

Across the city, Chicago bungalow owners demonstrate their love for nature by beautifying their blocks with inspiring home gardens. Created in 2017, the Bungalow Garden Contest aims to celebrate the hard work of our members, and draw attention to how gardens not only enhance a home’s architecture, but can also promote a healthier ecosystem and uplift a community.
