Battle of the Build

2020 Eastman Credit Union


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 will compete by planning and building a project and then presenting their completed entry at our Annual Home & Outdoor Show to judges from the building industry across the nation. Students will be on site to explain their project and answer questions to the public. Projects displayed will be available for silent auction with ALL of the proceeds going back to the participating school. JCAHBA members will act as mentors to their assigned school during the process and will be present with the students during Show hours. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places based on the 5 categories; presentation, build quality, finish quality, creativity, and complexity. NEW this year, a prize will be awarded for Popular Vote and another will be awarded as the Chairman’s Choice.

Saturday, February 22, 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. 

Sunday, February 23, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
