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 200 awards have been presented to NWFA member companies throughout the world.

The submission period is October 1, 2018 - January 11, 2019. No extensions will be granted. Winners will be announced during the 2019 NWFA Wood Flooring Expo in Fort Worth, Texas.
