KC MADE Competition Is Going Virtual

KC MADE - Logo
Due to the state of emergency declared by local, state and federal entities, the KC MADE competition, originally scheduled to be held during the 2020 Greater Kansas City Home & Lifestyle Show in March, has been rescheduled for May 29-31 as a virtual competition.



What is the KC MADE competition?
The KC Manufacturing and Design Expo is a contest among high school students (grades 9-12) in construction and manufacturing programs. Projects are not limited in scope. Participants have the freedom to enter everything from a tiny house to a dining room table.

KC MADE Mission
The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City (KCHBA) is a non-profit organization focused on supporting the home-building industry. KCHBA hosts the KC MADE competition to promote careers in the residential construction industry. KC MADE is a component of the KCHBA’s workforce development initiative, which began due to the current skilled labor shortage within the home-building industry. The KC MADE competition focuses not only on promoting skilled trade development and opportunities in the home-building industry, but also the importance of soft skills and connecting education to industry stakeholders.

Judging and Awards
A panel of judges will determine the award winners based on project quality, skill knowledge and professionalism. Winners will be announced on Facebook Live on Sunday, May 31 at 2:00 p.m. Program grants will be rewarded to the schools of the first, second and third place overall winners in the amounts of $1,000, $750 and $500.

Showmanship Winner:
This individual displays professionalism with their attire, communication skills and leadership. This award is decided upon by the panel of judges.
People’s Choice Winner: Consumers will be able to view the projects on the Kansas City Home Show’s Facebook page and vote for their favorite.
