The “Building Skills Competition” Pits NMC Vs TBA Students

Dec. 13, 2018

In an effort to bring a greater awareness to the skilled trades as a viable career option, the Home Builders Association of the Grand Traverse Area has created a Building Skills Competition between the Career Tech Center and Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) students. The four classes (two at each school, 16 students each) are constructing 12'x8' buildings. The NMC classes are building saunas, while the TBA students are constructing multi-use buildings. The students are documenting their progress with pictures and videos, which will be shared by the students during the HBA Home EXPO at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa January 19 and 20.

The structures will be raffled off on May 1 during Career Tech Center's Spring EXPO on Parsons Road. Raffle tickets are now on sale at the HBA office for $20 each.
