HS Masonry Days are being planned for the 2019/20 school year!

We hope you can join us for one of our HS Masonry Days we have scheduled around the state.If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Stephenson at 515-979-8235. 

In an effort to promote the skilled trades at the high school level, the Masonry Institute of Iowa (MII) – a nonprofit association dedicated to promoting masonry in Iowa – is pleased to team up contractors and suppliers from around the state to offer HS Masonry Days to allow high school students to explore careers in masonry.

The students will have time to try bricklaying as well other stations that will show them other aspects of the industry and masonry products (they rotate through 11-13 stations and each station is 15 minutes long). Students will be divided into small groups to promote one-on-one interaction with the leaders of the masonry industry. Lunch is provided and registration is complimentary.

Please check back for registration information and for announcement of additional dates.

Quote from Neysa Hartzler, IowaWorks: "You can't imagine how many compliments I got from your masonry day. That was a big hit! The East Marshall counselor told me that day was the best day he's ever seen as far as taking students out of school. And he's been there for 20+ years."
