March 31 | Edwards Demonstration and Learning Center


SkillsUSA Illinois, with founding partner Otto Baum Company Inc., have worked hard to create an event to provide students and opportunity to see what a successful future can look like in the skilled trades; specifically around construction pathways. We are so pleased to be able to invite you and your students to this event.


This event will take place on March 31, 2023. Due to overwhelming interest, the event has been moved to Caterpillar Edwards Demonstration and Learning Center. 


The event will be a great opportunity for high school students to connect with a robust group of employers in the construction industries, including union affiliations. At the event, students will be able to participate in workshop stations and hands-on activities with the potential for prizes. These activities will help students develop an understanding of each specific construction trade field and the skills needed to succeed.


During their time at the event, students will be able to discuss and learn about current needs and trends within the various industries as well as industry growth. Students will be able to take the information they gain and use it to determine in which industry or trade they are most interested and have the most aptitude.
