The NAWIC Education Foundation (NEF) has two wonderful awards for the Construction/Education Community.
Take a moment and think about your Chapter and your Region. There is someone who has made Construction Education a priority, a passion.
Go to the NEF Website www.nef-edu.org and nominate them for one of these National awards.
Help us recognize these women and men who shine a light on Construction Education.
First Award – Open to both men and women
Carol A. Kueker Construction Education Visionary Award
Do you know an Educator or Construction Education Advocate that you would like to see recognized on a National level who has a passion for and dedication to Construction Education? This award recognizes a Construction Industry Educator who has worked aggressively to promote Construction as a viable career path through training and education and/or has worked with Associations and other organizations to establish educational programs to advance and benefit employees in the Construction Industry.
Second Award – NEF Volunteer or NAWIC Member
Darline H. Johnson Volunteer Achievement Award
Established in 1993 this award recognizes an NEF volunteer or NAWIC member for outstanding service as a Volunteer for NEF on a local, regional and/or National Level. This award highlights the individual that has gone beyond what is normally expected. This award may not necessarily be awarded every year.
