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 compete by planning and building a project and then present their completed entry to judges from the building industry across the nation. JCAHBA members act as mentors to their assigned school during the process. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places based on the 5 categories; presentation, build quality, finish quality, creativity, and complexity.

Prizes are also presented for Popular Vote and a very special Chairman’s Choice Award that will be presented to the project selected by the Immediate Past Chair of the National Association of Home Builders.
