Event description

Description

We are excited to invite rising 7th and 8th graders (2019-2020) to attend the second annual Governor’s Construction Careers Expo. The Expo will be held at the Chase Center in Wilmington on September 23rd, 2019. The event is free to attend and will provide hands-on learning opportunities and interactive experiences for students.

The construction industry is one of Delaware’s fastest growing employment sectors with more than 3,500 jobs expected to be added through 2024. The careers that will be showcased are both high-paying and highly skilled. Students will participate in one of three scheduled blocks to meet with employers, sample fun activities and tools, participate in heavy equipment demonstrations and virtual simulators, and compete in quick draw competitions.

Through the support of our partnering sponsors, all costs associated with attending the Expo are covered. Superintendents have agreed to pay for the transportation costs of their students attending. If applicable, lunch should be provided or addressed by each school. We are also planning to host families and job seekers that afternoon and evening. An announcement for this event will be sent out in early September.

Please use the link below to register for the Expo. Due to space constraints, we can only allow for a maximum of 100 students from any given school. We have three time slots for your convenience. Please select your preferred time slot (subject to availability), and the number of buses that you will require.
