The National Association of Women In Construction (NAWIC) hosts their annual Block Kids Building Program for K-6th Graders. This is a national building program competition which introduces children to the construction industry in an effort to create an awareness and promote an interest in future careers in one of the many facets of the industry.
The competition involves the construction of various structures with interlocking blocks, and three of the following items: a small rock, string, foil, and poster board.
Local winners are advanced to a Regional competition, and one semi-finalist from each region is entered in the National Program competition. National prizes are awarded to the top three projects.
This program is open to children in Kindergarten through 6th Grade only. There are a limited number of spaces available. Please contact Youth Services to register your child, or come into the library and register at the Youth Services desk.
THIS PROGRAM IS FULL.
Participants will be asked to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out registration forms.
