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.
The Block Kids program was created in 1990 to introduce children to the construction industry. Since launching the program, more than 300,000 children have participated nationally.
Program GuidelinesKids 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.
