Block Kids Contest

Saturday, October 8, 10–12 pm

First through fifth graders from the area are invited to participate in the 24th Annual Block Kids Contest sponsored by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). The purpose of the contest is to educate elementary students and promote interest in the construction industry. Participants will use plastic interlocking blocks and other materials to build a project related to construction such as buildings, structures or equipment used in construction. Projects will be judged on basis of originality and explanation of project. There will be a first place winner from each grade level and the overall winner from the five finalists will have their project submitted to the regional competition to compete at regional and national levels. There is no cost to participate. Refreshments will be served. To register, contact Karen Krietlow at 605-999-2509 or email her at

The contest will be at the Old Courthouse Museum, at 200 W 6th Street. Click here for directions.
