WHAT IS BLOCK KIDS?
The Block Kids Building Contest was developed by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). The purpose of the contest is to educate elementary students and promote interest in the construction industry. The contest is run much like a modern day construction project, with the contractors (children) registering with the construction managers before going over to the supplier to receive material for the building contest. Each contractor is then led to his or her job site by a foreman, where he or she will build a construction project. Projects will be judged by building inspectors on the basis of originality and explanation of the project. All participants will be using plastic interlocking building blocks and other materials. There will be a first place winner from each grade level and the overall winner from the five finalists will have their project
submitted to the regional competition to compete at regional and national levels. The project should be construction related such as buildings, structures or equipment used in construction. The ideas are endless.There is no cost to participate.
