GHAC Sponsors Kids Building WI 2015
On Saturday, May 9th (10 am), the second annual Kids Building Wisconsin event took place at McKee Farms Park. Kids Building Wisconsin is a community endeavor that focuses on getting kids interested in pursuing careers in the construction industry. This even also lays the groundwork for addressing the shortage of skilled workers presently in Wisconsin, and boosts the image of the construction industry as a whole. General Heating and Air Conditioning is a proud sponsor of the event.
Kids Building Wisconsin is a day of education and fun. It provides hands-on experiences, a chance for kids to see real life construction equipment, learning opportunities, and a chance to win prizes.
2014 marked the first annual event with 1,500 children in attendance, and this year the event grew even more with 1,750 kids in attendance. Everyone received a free hard hat for attending. There were 22 interactive exhibits for the kids to investigate and four pieces of real construction equipment for them to experience.
GHAC is excited to see the event continue to flourish with its educational value and the enthusiasm it can instill within our industry’s future leaders in years to come.
