THE NEXT BLOCK KIDS PROGRAM WILL BE HELD ON
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2023
Planning is underway --- check back in August 2023.
WHAT IS THE BLOCK KIDS BUILDING PROGRAM?
The Block Kids is a national building competition for children in 1st through 6th grade and introduces them to construction careers. Each child is given 100 blocks and the choice of 3 other items (a small rock, string, foil, and poster board) to use their imagination in constructing a structure or project.
This award-winning national competition is sponsored by the NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation. Local winners advance to the regional competition, and one semi-finalist from each region is entered in the National program competition. Local and National prizes are awarded to the top three projects.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Participants have one hour to create something construction related without adult help or guidance using approved materials. Once complete, the student will meet with a judge or judges who will rate the project and ask the student a series of questions. Local trades will have interactive activities setup outside the contest area for the students to play and investigate construction activities.
Each participant will receive a free t-shirt and goodie bag!
