The Home Builders Association of Greater Siouxland held their first annual BUILD MY FUTURE event at the WITCC campus on April 25, 2019. Over 400 students from around Siouxland came to learn about a career in the construction industry through interactive activities and hands-on experience with everything from educational displays, heavy equipment and construction materials, to using tools of the trades.
Some of the activities included surveying, electrical wiring and testing, window installation, paint labs, welding simulations, carpentry, brick laying, safety procedures and more.
Each student attending received an event t-shirt, lunch and protective eye-wear.
Thank you to all the supporters and participants of our first annual BUILD MY FUTURE event!
