15th Annual Construction Career Days of South Florida

Tuesday, October 13, 2015
The 15th annual Construction Career Days of South Florida takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 20 – 21, 2015, at Bergeron Rodeo Grounds, 4271 Davie Road, Davie.

The two-day event kicks off with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Tuesday, October 20, at 7:45 a.m. The event will be open each day from 9 a.m – 2 p.m. as a forum for students to learn about rewarding careers in the highway and bridge industry.
Students will meet and interact with leaders in the construction field, observe demonstrations and experience several aspects of construction through hands-on learning labs. The focus is on attracting young people to begin thinking about future education and career goals, and potentially pique their interest in considering a career in the construction industry.
Students will be able to see and learn firsthand the outstanding career options available to them, whether they enter the workforce after high school, gain post-secondary training or pursue college degrees in construction or engineering. This one-of-a-kind event offers students a glimpse into one of the largest growing industries in the nation.
Construction Career Days of South Florida is a national event sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration, Florida Transportation Builder’s Association and Florida Department of Transportation.
