Youth Construction Discovery Challenge
invites proposals for a dream school
The competition is co-organised by the VTC Building and Civil Engineering Training Board, Construction Industry Council, construction associations and professional institutes. Open for applications in September this year, the competition met with overwhelming response with over 50 teams comprising more than 400 secondary students submitting applications. Coached by professionals of the industry, the teams are required to submit a proposal for a construction project to improve their own school and present their models before the panel adjudicators by May 2012.
The competition provides an opportunity for secondary students to showcase their creativity and develop team spirit as well as to exchange with experienced industry practitioners, gaining valuable insights and widening their exposure. It also enables the students to increase their understanding of the various professions in the industry, attracting them to develop their future careers in the trade.
