2020 BLOCK KIDS COMPETITION

Block Kids encourages and promotes construction to students in grades 1st through 6th. The contest is held at the local, regional and then national level. Students are provided with 100 building blocks and three other materials to build a construction project in 45 minutes. They are judged on the construction of their project and their verbal explanation of the project.

The 2020 contest was held on February 14th at River Road Parks and Recreation (Emerald Park) in Eugene. The grand prize winner was a 2nd grader. He built a construction site that had an unsafe building that need to be torn down. On site was a bulldozer, excavator and crane. 


OREGON COAST RETREAT

Oregon Coast Retreat is an opportunity for Oregon NAWIC members to get together and get to know one another. Chapters from the Pacfic NW Region are also invited to attend. There will be a variety of activities and it's a fun and relaxing retreat for all! Guests are invited to attend.

The 2020 conference will be held April 23rd - April 25th in Boise, Idaho. More information to follow. 
 


WOMEN BUILD

NAWIC supported the Habitat Women Build last year on Saturday, Sept 28, 2019. We were well represented and participated with many other women to start this home. NAWIC teams received both first and second places for securing the most donations for this project as well as having NAWIC members Kim McBride and Karen Jones as the leads. The floor was nailed, walls were raised, ground was seeded and raked, and the fence was rebuilt. What a great day to support Habitat and help a family! Thank you NAWIC members!

We will be supporting Habitat for Humanity again in 2020 later this Spring. Stay tuned for more information.
