Construction Career Day
Construction Career Day 2023 took place on Thursday, April 13th, between 8 AM - 2 PM at the Mathewson Exhibition Center on the Missouri State Fair Grounds, in Sedalia, MO.
The 2023 event was a huge success! Below are some of the specifics:
The purpose of Construction Career Day is to engage students and educate them about the opportunities within the construction industry today. Students have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with interactive displays, equipment operation and learning labs. Career opportunities that students can explore include:
- Heavy equipment operation
- Heating and cooling
- And many other construction related trades
At the 2019 event, we had approximately 400 students attend, representing 47 school districts. 86% of students surveyed after our last event had a positive opinion of a career in construction and 75% of students say they are now interested in a career in the construction industry after attending the event
