Join Our Social Community with Your Own Stories from Your First Year on the Job
We all had to start somewhere. Before all of our work boots were worn in, we all had our share of rookie days filled with blunders and jobsite firsts. What moments did you take with you from your first year of construction?
Did you wear the wrong gear, forget to update the meeting minutes or have a superintendent you’ll never forget? We’ve all been there on our journeys from rookies to industry veterans. Whether you have a funny story, an embarrassing mistake or an inspirational moment, we want to hear and share your stories from your rookie year on the jobsite.
Starting today through October 7, we’re asking all members of the construction community to share a picture and their story to social media. Every participant (up to 100) will receive a #constructionrookie t-shirt as well as be entered to win the grand prize–a PlanGrid Patagonia fleece jacket and $250 gift card to Duluth Trading Co.!
How to Enter
There are two ways you can share your #constructionrookie moments with us to receive a t-shirt and be entered in the running to win the grand prize.

Enter Through an Online Form

After the sweepstakes closes on October 7, the grand prize winner will be randomly selected and announced on October 9.
