Equipment Days Recap

We spent April 28 - May 1 in Doniphan, NE at the Cornhusker State Trap Shoot promoting the construction industry.
2021 AGC Nebraska Equipment Days



Workforce Development. Education. Networking. Events.  We bundled a number of AGC Nebraska benefits into a few days this past weekend at our second-ever AGC Equipment Days at the Cornhusker State Trap Shoot in Doniphan, NE. 

Each year, thousands of children, ages 10-18, make their way to Doniphan to shoot clays.  Long-time member, Steve Peck, identified an opportunity for AGC Nebraska to set up a booth and promote the industry. However, our booth was not just any booth.  We gave the children an opportunity to operate a mini excavator, try out three different heavy equipment simulators and enter to win one of three Tri-Star SKB shotguns.

          

Over 800 middle and high-school-aged children came through our event.  We had a great turnout of member volunteers who could chat with the students about the benefits of a career in construction - like zero college debt and higher than average income.  We look forward to building off of this year's event to make the 2022 Equipment Days an even greater success.
