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

Paint a snow plow blade!
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.
