This program is sponsored on a chapter-level. It is available to students in grades 1-6. Each year, kids participate in building a project out of interlocking blocks, a rock, a piece of string, and aluminum foil. Again, the winner can move to regional and national recognition. It is a great way to stimulate the creative imagination of a child and plant the seed for a career in construction. Our chapter specifically makes it more enjoyable by having construction equipment onsite and also having “Bob the Builder” there as well.
Plans activities to celebrate National “Women in Construction” week. The focus is to spotlight women in the construction industry and for members to reach out and give back to their communities.
