This is an annual event, held locally on a chapter level, then the winner goes on to represent us on a Regional level!

The event encourages and promotes construction to students in grade 3. Students are provided with identical kits of material and given 45 minutes to build something pertaining to construction. They are judged on the construction and their verbal explanation of their project.

Every student is given 100 Building Blocks, a piece of string, a piece of foil and a piece of cardboard and given 45 minutes to build something using their imaginations.

The goal of this event is to educate young minds to explore a multitude of career options and open the door for their creativity. Chapter 54 is excited to offer a fun event and can’t wait to see what comes of it.

With generous support from our sponsors and volunteers, the event will be a great success.
