Build My Future in SW MO School Registration 

Build My Future is an event for eighth grade through high school students who are interested in, or thinking about, a career in the building-trades industry.  

Employers and training providers will have hands-on activities in different areas of building trades for students to do to help them learn what is done on the job every day.

This is a FREE event for schools, but registration by March 31 is required.  After March 31, please call 417-625-9914 for registration availability.

You may choose your arrival time and stay until the event ends at 2 p.m..  Lunch will be provided.  Students also will receive an event T-shirt, safety glasses and small bag to carry belongings.

Tech schools and sending schools:  PLEASE coordinate before registering students to prevent double registrations.

Home-school students are encouraged to attend.

We will require ALL participants of the event, including teachers and staff, to bring a signed liability release before being allowed to interact with any of the activities.  We also ask that instructors review safety information with students PRIOR to the day of the event.
