Block Kids Building Program 

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.
