BUILD AuctionSixth-grade students from Washington West Elementary and Campbellton Elementary will hold their BUILD Academy Dog House Auction on Friday, May 10, at Four Rivers Career Center.

The auction will consist of 23 custom built dog houses, which would fit the needs of any size dog. The event will be outdoors, weather permitting. Dogs are invited if the event is outside.

The event begins with viewing of the dog houses at 5:30 p.m. The auction starts at 6 p.m.

There will be hot dogs, chips and drinks available for purchase.

The dog houses were built by the sixth-grade students with the help of Building Construction students at Four Rivers Career Center.

All proceeds will help fund future BUILD Academy projects. Delivery is available for those who purchase a dog house.

The School District of Washington's BUILD Academy (Building Unique and Innovative Learning by Design) is held at Four Rivers Career Center.

BUILD Academy offers an authentic project based learning experience to over 100 sixth-grade students from Washington West Elementary and Campbellton Elementary.

This project based learning model exposes students to possible careers that they may not even knew exist before they enter the BUILD Academy.

The end project is a dog house. However, the true learning occurs when these students use every day standards by means of developing a business plan, designing business logos, drafting the dog house design from scratch and applying math and measuring skills to the actual building of the dog house.
