Completely KIDS’ Teens participated in the 4H Build a Hut program this summer. Each week, they learned construction, engineering, electricity and more from professionals. The goal is to put their knowledge of solar paneling, water transportation and more to the test, creating African huts in the village of New Maiwut.
At the end of the program, five teens from the Completely KIDS programs were chosen to compete – both individually and as a group – against Girls Inc., North Star Foundation and many others in the ULTIMATE build off.
The competition was held on Thursday, August 4 from 8AM to 3PM at University of Nebraska Omaha’s Milo Bail Student Center. Each student had a specific role with certain duties to carry out. They worked together to construct their hut and ensure it had all the correct components – judgements were made on durability, creativity and water presence. Our students put up an impressive showing, coming in third overall.
Completely KIDS is very proud of our students and their commitment to the project and program. We can’t wait for more students to get involved in this program next year.
4H is a nonprofit organization that offers different development opportunities and programs for youth across America. 4H educators have previously taught finance, STEM and more at Completely KIDS.
