Annual Scholarship Auction:

The scholarships we award annually to local/regional male and female students pursuing an education in a construction-related field are made possible through funds raised at our Scholarship Auction.  All items presented for auction are donated by local businesses, associations, groups, clubs and individuals who share in the NAWIC commitment to facilitate the education of our area youth, particularly those who are the future of the construction industry.  The Scholarship Auction is held annually in November, and is well attended by members’ companies, their clients, and other supporters of NAWIC and the construction industry in general.  The auction is open to the public, so please consider attending!  Watch the events calendar for details and a registration form.  To donate an item, service, or to help sponsor an item for the auction, please e-mail us at info@nawicqc.com.

This years auction will be held on November 10, 2017 at the Holiday Inn in Rock Island. 2017 Auction Invitation (.pdf)

Garden Shed Building Project:

This fun project is targeted to middle school aged children and makes THEM a “design-build” contractor!  Kids team up to form a company who then work together to budget for, design, and then construct (using arts & crafts supplies, which are provided) a 120 – 180 square foot garden shed.  Minimum building requirements have to be incorporated, and each company’s imaginary budget is $18,000. Our chapter is in the process of organizing this event

Block-Kids Building Program:

Block Kids Building Contest – Please note new location.

It's building time again! Join us on Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 9 to 11:30 AM for the annual Block Kids Building Contest at the Bettendorf Community Center.

The Block-Kids Building Program is a national building program competition that is co-sponsored locally by Chapter #50 and the Davenport West Family Y.  This popular program introduces children to the construction industry in an effort to create an awareness of and to promote an interest in future careers in one of the many facets of the industry.  Participants receive 100 plastic, interlocking building blocks, a piece of string and a piece of aluminum foil to create a building project in 45 minutes. They are encouraged to look for creative solutions to construction challenges.  The entrants will be judged by members of the Quad Cities building community, and prizes are awarded to the top three entrants. The project chosen by the judges as the most noteworthy will be entered in a regional contest.  Winners at the regional level will then be entered in a national contest.  The program is open to all elementary school children in grades 1-6.  Pre-registration is strongly recommended but if there are openings or cancellations registrations will be taken the morning of the event.  There is no fee to register.

Habitat for Humanity:

Each spring or summer, we coordinate a date for members from our chapter to volunteer at a local Habitat build.  This has proven to be a fun and rewarding way to help our community, and perhaps learn a new technique or skill!

This years award night has been canceled. Please check back for additional information and dates.

Industry Appreciation Night:

In conjunction with a monthly meeting, our chapter recognizes our employers for their gracious support throughout the year.
