We are looking for creative kids!
Block kids is a national, annual event sponsored locally by the National Association of Women in Construction Greater Omaha Chapter #116. This is a FREE event aimed to familiarize children with the construction industry in a fun setting.
Kids are given a maximum of one hour to use their blocks & selected items to build a project that is in some way related to the construction industry. Items used include 100 interlocking blocks, small rock, string, foil, poster board. Once completed, judges will interview participants about the project asking questions like: Why did you choose to build this project? What do you like about it? Is there anything you would change? How will it be used?
Projects are scored on oral presentation, use of materials, enthusiasm, attention to detail, creativity, and reason for participation. Winning local projects will advance to a regional competition, with the chance to advance to nationals.
NAWIC is getting behind the upcoming film, Hard Hatted Woman, at the national level. The Greater Omaha Chapter has contributed to the campaign and are working to have the film screened here in Omaha upon it's release.
You can learn about our partnership HERE.
Our Chapter is also committed to recognizing and supporting all of our very own Hard Hatted Women right here in Omaha. If you are a woman in the field, we want to hear from you!
