In another uniquely planned event, 2022 Dozer Day®: Yakima will display visual elements of a construction site experience and provide engaging hands-on activities and family experiences that will help inspire kids of all ages.

This year’s one-of-a-kind “Construction Expedition Tour” ride will give kids an up-close account of the earthwork, digging, and building that occurs on an accurate construction site. Families will discover static and in-motion displays of actual industry equipment of all kinds from event partners like DTG Recycle, American Rock Products, Blueline Manufacturing, and Central Paving. Dozer Day® will also feature interactive, hands-on activities like the Les Schwab Tires Pit Stop Challenge and Tire Crawl, the HD Fowler Pipe Tunnel Crawl, and the Dozer Day® Construction Scavenger Hunt; all designed to encourage interest and exploration of careers in construction. Kids can climb inside many of the big rigs, explore first responder vehicles, and discover a variety of heavy equipment vehicles on-site within zoned area roadways. An educational event program, safety equipment, and sponsor giveaways will help Dozer Day® be a dream-come-true for kids and fun for the whole family!

Central Washington Home Builders Association

Central Washington Home Builders Association is dedicated to workforce development, coordinating and supporting member and association efforts to recruit more people into residential construction trades. 

Labor and subcontractor shortages remained widespread and are continuing to impact the industry in several ways. Simultaneously, the student debt load from a traditional four-year path, pushed by educators, parents, and society, has risen sharply. With vocational training removed from classrooms and a lack of trade education, it is time to present construction jobs as viable alternatives.
