About the Carnival

A student learns to lay brick at the 2009 Construction CarnivalEach year, almost 400 pre-registered high and middle school students don safety goggles, hard hats, and ear plugs to storm the halls of the Western Washington Sheet Metal Joint Apprenticeship Training Center in the name of learning about careers in the building trades.

Workforce Development Council Snohomish County (WDCSC) is pleased to host its fourth annual Construction Carnival—a day of hands-on demonstration and inspiring conversation—sponsored by a team of union and industry professionals who are committed to ending workforce shortages in this key industry.

The Carnival is on hiatus for the 2011-2012 school year. Look for it next year!
