To celebrate, Kitsap County Public Works offers three exciting events for students!

Career Day  Public Works Tour Day  Paint a Snow Plow

National Public Works Week (NPWW) celebrates the tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works.  Instituted as a public education campaign by the American Public Works Association (APWA) in 1960, NPWW calls attention to the importance of public works in community life.


Career Day


On Tuesday, April 26, 2016 nearly 80 high school students from Kitsap County will spend the day learning about careers in Public Works. The day includes an open house at two Public Works facilities, where students learn about the wide variety of exciting careers available in Public Works in addition to receiving information on the extremely beneficial and popular summer help program.

“This field trip really confirmed my interest in civil engineering, especially in roadway and infrastructure.

I am interested and am hoping to join your summer program. “

Public Works Tour Day

Tuesday, May 17 is the annual Public Works Tour Day for students in grades 3 through 6. Students spend the day at the Randy W. Casteel Public Works Annex in a fun and interactive day of learning. Students rotate through five stations highlighting various activities in Public Works. Students learn about traffic signs, road striping, intersection signals, crosswalks, stormwater management, wastewater treatment, and how our garbage is processed. At one of the station rotations students will demonstrate their Public Works knowledge in a fast pace round of “Public Works Game”. You won’t want to miss this opportunity for your students.

“Strong tie to Community standards for third grade social studies and fourth grade science standards – water, wastewater, and ecology”                                                                            -- 3rd/4th grade teacher

“This was super informative and fun!  I am so grateful that you all took your time to share your work with the kids.  Afterwards one of my students said, “Everyone there liked kids!”
– 4th grade teacher
