2020 GI Area Future Builders Challenge

The spring 2020 program has been postponed at this time for the health and safety of all involved.  A new date will be announced at a later time.


January 13-17, 2020

Students at participating high schools will take the Builder Profile 10 assessment.  Surveys are then analyzed for those who show extreme Builder talents and those students are invited to the Inspiration Rally and Future Builders Challenge.

February 20, 2020

Approximately 125 students who show extreme builder talents were invited to an Inspiration Rally at College Park in Grand Island to hear from community leaders how others took their strengths to change their communities and build business.  The parents of these students were also invited to the Inspiration Rally.

March 20 & 23, 2020

Qualifying students will participate in the boot camp portion of the Future Builders Challenge.  The boot camp will be followed by a coaching session and pitch competition.  At these events, students will learn more about their strengths from Gallup trained coaches, and how to build on those strengths as they work with community mentors on pitch competition ideas centered on solving challenges for the community.  Cash prizes will be offered for the top three winning ideas presented at the competition. 

“Grand Island provided us the ability to build and maintain professional careers, while still being present in our children's lives. That's the 'better opportunity' we found here.”
