Join the industry movement to increase youth awareness of career opportunities in the excavation and utility trades by becoming a financial supporter of this exciting event.

 

Participants will educate young people on the construction and utility careers available to them through:

 

  • Booth Exhibits:  Contractors, Suppliers, trade apprenticeship programs, will be among the booth exhibitors.
  • Hands-On Activities: Participants and students will collaboratively demonstrate job-related skills, installing piping, utilizing GPS Systems in relation to excavation and utility construction, exposure to computer programs associated with estimating and bidding work, virtual reality equipment simulation, in a controlled environment.
  • Heavy Equipment: Students, under the guidance of trained operators, will actually run the equipment in a controlled, safe environment under skilled direction.

 

The goal for the day is to introduce local high school students to the wide range of career choices and training opportunities available in the excavation and utility industries.  We’re asking for your support in helping us put on this event.
