Model Home Build Competition

The QC Student Trades Initiative Team has an exciting new event just for 7th and 8th graders from the QC area schools! The Model Home Build Competition is a chance for students to build a model home out of every day materials for a chance to win up to a $100 Visa Gift Card! The competition will bring out creativity in students and get them excited about the skilled trades!

Students will complete their model home build during the month of February. Each school will select their best model home to move onto the finals. That winner will showcase their model home to a panel of judges via Zoom on March 5 at 10:00 AM. The top three winners from the entire competition will be announced on March 10, 2021! This is an event you DON’T want to miss out on!

  • We need a representative (teacher, counselor, principal)  from your building to complete the School Interest Form by February 2nd! Once we have your interest form, your students are free to start their model home build. The build can take place at school or at home, how you choose to implement the competition is totally up to you!

  • Winner Submission- your school will be responsible for evaluating and selecting the best model home from your school by February 26th. Use the winner submission form to submit the student that will move onto the finals!
