Share your expertise as a judge

The call for judges of the Senior Living by Design Awards is now open! Argentum will select approximately 10 design judges from the senior living industry to help determine the Senior Living by Design Award winners.

  1. Judges must have at least five years of experience in senior living design and an ability to fairly evaluate the entries. If your company is submitting an award, you may still participate as a judge but will need to opt out of review for that particular award rating.

  2. Judging will occur the week of August 15-22 and will require up to 4 hours of reading and review.

  3. Interested applicants should fill out the Senior Living by Design Call for Judges form to provide information as to why you would like to judge the awards and the qualifications you bring to the review process. All judging applicants will be confirmed via email.

Judges will pay specific attention to programs that recognize the need for wellness services, the desire for community, and necessity of staff safety as staff care for residents as they age.
