Thank you to our
Construction Industry Night Platinum Awards Gala
Students in grades K-6 were given a tool kit of 100 interlocking blocks, one piece of string, one piece of aluminum foil and one piece of construction paper. They are given 45 minutes to create a "mini-model" of a "commercial" structure of their imagination. Last year's Detroit winner, 2nd grader Parker Dupree, went on to win NAWIC North Central Region Block Kids. There is no charge for participation, but space is limited to 100 students.
1st Place went to a Jehan Bazzi, a 5th grader from William Ford Elementary School. Jehan built a house that included a solar panel and swimming pool to be used for lower-income families.
2nd Place went to Pallas Bibbs, a 3rd grader from Lincoln-King Academy.
3rd Place went to Aniyah Harris, a 5th grader from Crescent Academy.
