With a closing date of January 23, 2015, Environmental Excellence Awards are given each year to member companies that have made a significant "quality of life" impact on their community.

With a closing date of December 31, the Lifetime Achievement Award is made to a member selected for his or her exceptional service to the Association and the industry. The award honours members of the Association for their leadership and commitment to the NDA’s organisational vision and mission, and pays tribute to the individual’s commitment to the betterment of their community, the company they worked for and the demolition Industry as a whole

The scholarships available from the NDA have a closing date for applications of January 9, 2015.
