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.

Kitsap County celebrates NPWW by offering three exciting opportunities for student participation in the celebration.

On Monday, May 18 over 60 high school students from area school will spend the day learning about careers in Public Works. The day includes on-site visits to Public Works facilities, an introduction to the summer help program, and informative presentations from employees who work in all phases of public works.

Tuesday, May 19 is the annual Public Works day for students. This is a day-long learning experience for students in 3rd through 6th grade. Students visit the Randy W. Casteel Public Works annex and go through a series of classes and site visits to learn about Public Works.

Paint a snow plow blade!
Open to any classroom in unincorporated Kitsap County
Have you ever wanted to see your class artwork on a 12-foot by 3-foot canvas? Kitsap County is seeking artistic snow plow blade designs from any level classrooms in the unincorporated areas of Kitsap County.

Each year we invite classrooms to participate in our snow plow blade painting contest. Public Works delivers the plow blade to the school and supplies the paints and brushes to finish the blade painting. To see the snow plow blades painted during the 2012 contest click here. To see the plow blades painted during the 2013 contest click here. See the article below for more about entering this year's contest.

If your design is selected Public Works provides the plow blade, paints, and brushes for your class to paint the plow blades. Click here for an entry form. Click here for a flyer about this year's contest.
