Build My Future 2022


The 2022 hands-on Build My Future career event, sponsored by Iowa Skilled Trades was held today in Des Moines on April 13th at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Mr. Entner and some of his students took a trip down to Des Moines for this awesome experience!

This year’s career pathways include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Healthcare/Nursing
  • Law Enforcement & Emergency Services
  • Military
  • Culinary, Restaurant & Hospitality
  • Agriculture
  • Commercial & Residential Construction
  • Heavy Equipment Operators

As always these businesses showcase their business and careers through a hands-on, interactive activity for students, teachers & parents to experience — including homeschoolers. These could include using tools of the trade, virtual reality, and simulators.

All attendees go through a brief safety meeting where they’ll receive personal protective equipment like eye, hand, and ear protection. If any additional PPE is required the businesses will provide them for their hands-on activity.
