NCCER and Build Your Future's I BUILT THIS video contest aims to give aspiring craft professionals and their instructors an opportunity to showcase outstanding construction projects and designs.

This year's video contest was a huge success! We had more submissions than ever and competition was strong. The winners are listed below. Congratulations, everyone!

We are very excited for the 2018 I BUILT THIS! video contest. Next year’s contest will feature exciting new prizes, and we will publish the contest rules earlier in the year to give contestants more time to create outstanding entries.
