For the ninth year, members of the Kentucky Construction Career Choice Council (K4C) hosted the annual Construction Career Days event at the Shelby County Fairgrounds in Shelbyville. K4C is a trade education affiliate to Kentucky’s construction industry.
This year, more than 2,400 students and their teachers participated in a number of hands-on activities provided by a host of vendors representing construction trade associations. Many postsecondary institution representatives were also there to promote construction programs available at the college level.
In all the years I have been going to this event, it just keeps getting better. The people in charge of organizing it do a tremendous job and the business and industry partners that participate are outstanding with the students.
It really provides these students hands-on experiences that will ultimately help them decide on a career.
