Workforce Development Award

The CURT Workforce Development Awards are designed to provide significant national and international recognition for extraordinary, exemplary, and innovative training and education programs that encourage individuals to pursue a career in the construction industry and/or enhance an individual’s construction skills.

*NEW!* Many non-profit organizations are doing outstanding work to improve construction workforce development and training on very limited budgets.  In recognition and promotion of these efforts, CURT, NCCER, and IMPACT are jointly sponsoring a $5,000 award and recognition of the winning workforce program award submission.  To be eligible, the non-profit must submit a winning program on their own, or jointly with another organization, such as a contractor/for-profit. We encourage any non-profit with a competitive, excellent workforce development and training program to compete for the opportunity to receive $5,000 to continue their efforts.
