Local Construction Professionals And Kennedy Krieger's School Students Work Together Building Futures

February 12, 2003
Construction professionals to aid Kennedy Krieger students in "Block Kids" competition and in demonstrating the "tools of the trade"

Media Advisory: The Baltimore Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) will introduce students at Kennedy Krieger's Lower and Middle Schools (Grades 1- 8) to careers in construction. Many volunteers will be on hand to offer interactive demonstrations in masonry, painting, dry wall application and electrical work.

In addition to this introduction to the field, volunteers involved in local construction-related occupations will judge the "Block Kids" competition. Each of the students will receive 100 Lego blocks to build structures related to the construction industry (e.g. homes, hospitals, and schools). The winner of this competition will compete with other Mid-Atlantic winners for an opportunity to advance to the national contest.
