NAWIC 21st Annual Block Kids Program a Big Hit!

Promotional Incentives | NAWIC Block Kids

Our Block Kids program is designed as an educational tool, to promote the construction industry by allowing the students from grades 1-6 to “build construction projects” with plastic building blocks as their “construction materials”. The program was created in 1990. Since launching the program, more than 300,000 children have participated. The overall winner of this event was Emilio Martinez of Tice Elementary. He is a 3rd grader.

Each child is presented a hardhat, commemorative T-shirt, and blueprint. Along with 100 plastic building blocks, a string, aluminum foil and a rock they create masterpieces. Southwest Florida businesses pledge sponsorships and provide judges for the students’ work. Awards and Trophies are given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each grade category.

It was our pleasure at Promotional Incentives, Inc. to provide the Commemorative T-shirts for this event over the past 6 years.
