Well it was another great evening of festivities, fun, food, and mingling at the 20 Year Holiday Celebration for the AWC!  Congrats to the DSS team for taking “Best in Style” at the photo booth this year!

Over 275 members of the construction community representing women business owners, general contractors, construction related service providers, and governmental agencies attended the exciting evening at A’Bulae in St. Paul.  This year marks the 20 year Anniversary of the founding of the organization with its mission of providing support to the growth of women’s participation in the Construction industry as women business owners and active members of the trades.   Designer Sign Systems joined AWC in 2005 and has been an active member in supporting the organization with donations of signage for events and participation on committees.

AWC has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to women entering the construction field and this year the AWC recognized Women Build Minnesota, Vicki Sandberg Director,  with a donation to their program of introducing women to the construction trades while providing broad experiential learning opportunities.  To date, Build Minnesota has placed over 200 enrollees into skilled trades positions working on projects such as TCF Stadium and US Bank Stadium.  

Very fun evening with a great group of women in construction!!
