OBERLIN, OH –The deadline for The Marble Institute of America's (MIA) Pinnacle Awards is August 1. These highly coveted awards are given to projects whose beauty, creativity, ingenuity and craftsmanship exemplify professional mastery in the use of natural stone in commercial and residential environments.

The Pinnacle Award winner from the Commercial Interior, Commercial Exterior, Residential/Exterior, Residential Interior or Renovation/Restoration categories that is selected as the best across all categories will receive the Grande Pinnacle Award, sponsored by Marmomacc,which is designed and crafted in Verona, Italy. The award winner receives round-trip economy airfare, a five nights paid hotel room, meals and registration to Marmomacc 2015, as well as other perks, such as an invitation to the gala dinner that closes the world's largest stone show. The Grande Pinnacle Award was created by Tobia Scarpa, an award-winning architect, designer, and restoration specialist.

All Pinnacle Award of Excellence and Award of Merit winners now have the opportunity to invite an architect from the firm involved in their winning project to StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas 2014.
