Battle of the Build


At its core, Battle of the Build is a grassroots workforce development outreach of the Johnson City Area Home Builders Association that seeks to build connections between local students, teachers, employers and those who have made careers in manufacturing, trades, and supporting businesses.

Area High Schools competed by planning and building a project and then they presented their completed entry at our Annual Home & Outdoor Show to judges from the building industry across the nation. JCAHBA members acted as mentors to their assigned school during the process. Prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places based on the 5 categories; presentation, build quality, finish quality, creativity, and complexity.

NEW this year was a cash prize for Popular Vote and a very special Chairman’s Choice Award that was presented to the project selected by the 1st Vice Chair of the National Association of Home Builders.
