Spearheaded by the National Center for Construction Education and Research and Build Your Future, Careers in Construction Month is held in October to raise awareness about career opportunities in construction and inspire the next generation of craft professionals, according to www.nccer.org.
Build Your Future provides various ways to get involved, including filing an official proclamation and submitting a video to the I BUILT THIS! video contest.
Build Your Future also is asking the construction industry to pledge its support and make a dedicated effort to connect with students virtually or in person. For signing the pledge, companies will be entered into a drawing to win one of four $5,000 scholarships given to the secondary craft training program of their choice. Sign the pledge.
