Construction Cluster/Woodworking Field Trip
Craft Championships 2016
Save the date!
Every year in Maine, thousands of construction jobs go unfilled because of a lack of available skilled workers. To meet the challenges of an aging workforce, we must encourage our young people to consider a career in construction. DCEF Craft Championships does just that by giving high school students a hands-on opportunity to try out the trades.
The Craft Championships focus attention on workforce development in the industry by demonstrating a commitment to safety, productivity and quality workmanship. The young men and women who participate in this event represent the future of merit shop construction. There are more than 50 construction companies with their equipment and activities right at the student’s fingertips.
We host over 1,000 kids and instructors at this event every year. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever – but we’ll need your help again to make it so. We are inviting high school students and instructors
throughout the state to participate in this exciting opportunity.
The championships are held at the Augusta Civic Center on
