BLOCK KIDS

Block Kids Building Competition is a National building competition that is sponsored on the local level by NAWIC chapters and other organizations.

The award-winning program introduces children to the construction industry in an effort to create awareness and promote careers in the industry. Participating students in grades k-6 are given interlocking blocks and the choice of three additional items (rock, string, foil, and poster board) to design and build a structure in the allotted amount of time. Judges evaluate the projects in terms of design intent, motivation, and general understanding of systems.
