Who we are?

Kids Building Wisconsin is here to inspire and encourage kids’ interest in construction. Kids Building Wisconsin is a 100% free event (with the exception of food) and open to the public. At our event, we have big construction equipment, awesome hands-on exhibits highlighting the many exciting careers in the construction industry, food, fun visitors, and lots of chances to win prizes.

 

Kids Building Wisconsin is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to three main goals:

 

  1. Hosting a fun, educational community event free of charge to show kids and their families the exciting potential that a career in the construction industry offers.

  2. Laying the groundwork to combat the skilled worker shortage in our beautiful state.

  3. Elevating the image of the industry and celebrating those in it.
