2017 Skilled Labor Shortage Scholarship
Win a $5,000 Scholarship!
Tell Us How You Would Solve America’s Skilled Labor Problem.
Imagine a world — just 30 short years from now — in which no one knows how to build a house or fix a leaky toilet.
America’s facing a problem that could make that kind of situation a reality: High school and college students have stopped pursuing careers in important skilled labor trades like plumbing, carpentry, and heating and cooling. As a result, there is a shortage of younger workers with the knowledge and skills necessary to take the place of older, retiring workers. This means that there may soon be few people who know how to perform the work that keeps our homes and businesses in good working order!
Our challenge to you: How do we fix it? HomeAdvisor will award a $5,000 scholarship to three students who can devise a creative solution to America’s skilled labor crisis — further detailed in HomeAdvisor’s 2016 Skilled Labor Shortage Report — by answering two questions:
