Future Craftsman & Design Award
The Building Congress & Exchange Foundation is proud to support our youth who are pursuing careers, training or degrees in the construction and design industry. Each year, the foundation awards the Future Craftsman & Design Award to deserving high school students who demonstrate excellence in the construction and design fields, including carpentry, masonry, electrical, drafting and mechanical trades. In addition to peer recognition and a commemorative plaque, the winners receive a $1,000 scholarship to be applied toward the cost of tuition for further construction or design-related education, or toward the purchase of tools to begin work in a construction career.
