UTICA, N.Y. – Mohawk Valley Health System is holding a ‘Build Your Own Hospital’ contest for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade.

The contest aims to get kids, especially young girls, interested in building and construction in honor of Women in Construction Week, which takes place March 7 – 13.

“Women in Construction Week is an excellent opportunity to not only highlight the amazing women that work in this industry, but to bring attention to the industry as a whole and encourage the younger generations to learn more,” said Hisa Zhu, project executive for Hammes Healthcare. “It is our hope that this contest will not only help kids understand all that goes into a large project like the new MVHS Regional Medical Center, but will give them something creative and fun to work on.”

Kids can use any materials found around the house to create their hospital, which should include:

  • Main Entrance
  • Ambulance/Emergency Department Entrance
  • Helipad
  • Patient Tower (MVHS has nine floors)
  • Greenspace (a park or garden area with plants or grass)
  • Signage

Contest winners will be announced on the MVHS website on March 29.
