Block Kids is a no cost interlocking building block (Lego® type) contest for all students grades K-6. Parents must be present. Participants are asked to create something construction related without adult help or guidance using approved materials such as building blocks, string, foil, etc. All participants receive a goodie bag, hard hat, and snack. There are limited seats available, so students are encouraged to register early.

The Block Kids Building Program is a national building competition for children in kindergarten through 6th grade and introduces them to construction careers.
