GHAC Sponsors Kids Building WI 2018
On Saturday, May 12th (10 am), the fifth annual Kids Building Wisconsin event will take 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 event 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 and Hooper Corporation are proud sponsors 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 each year the event has continued to grow. This year, food will be provided by Roman Candle, and cranes, fork lifts, excavators, cement trucks, and even a boom lift will be there for kids to explore. Several exhibits and games will be available including a nail hammering contest, safety cone ring toss, rubber duck races, an excavator simulator, a shake table, and more!
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.
