NEF Youth Programs

For more than 30 years, the NAWIC Education Foundation (NEF) has offered creative and educational programs for students from grade school to high school. NEF’s award-winning Block-Kids program, Accessory Structure Program, and CAD/Design/Drafting competitions introduce students to careers and opportunities in construction.

Since its founding, the NAWIC Founders’ Scholarship Foundation and NAWIC chapters nationwide have awarded more than $4 million in scholarships to students pursuing construction-related studies.
