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.
This year, Kitsap County celebrates NPWW by offering three exciting opportunities for student participation in the celebration. Click on the links below for registration and information.
High School Career Discovery Day
"I really enjoyed going on the Public Works field
trip. I learned a lot about road maintenance from Steve. I got to go see
different road repair sites throughout central Kitsap County. I was
shown a variety of vehicles, each with its own unique purpose. I
observed Public Works employees destroying parts of an old road and
watched as asphalt was poured in to fill it again. I also found out that
Public Works is a great job opportunity if you’re going to college. If I
had the chance I would definitely do it again."
Elementary Student Tour Day
“Strong tie to Community EALRs for third grade social studies and fourth
grade science EALRs - water, wastewater, and ecology”
“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!”
