Build A House...Build A Dream Contest for Kids

17th Annual | March 21, 2020

The below message was sent from Habitat for Humanity of Chester County regarding the 17th Annual Build A House…Build A Dream Contest for Kids which has been postponed:


We have been monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation closely with the health and safety of all our participants at the highest concern. With that in mind, we have come to a decision that we will be postponing the Build a House event (date to be determined). We will be working diligently to find a future date that is sensible for all the participants and within a reasonable time frame. We will communicate a decision on the postpone date for the event by the end of April.


It was a difficult decision to come to but was felt to be in the best interest of everyone involved. We will keep you informed as more information comes along with where and when we can showcase the students’  hard work and efforts.

Fox & Roach/Trident Charities is proud to be the founding sponsor of the Build A House…Build A Dream contest which raises funds for and awareness of the home-building efforts of Habitat for Humanity in Chester County and the greater Delaware Valley.


2020 marks the 17th anniversary of the contest. To date, more than 6,000 fifth-grade students from 750 area schools have participated, and roughly $500,000 has been raised through sponsorships in support of Habitat. In addition, hundreds of volunteer hours have been given by BHHS Fox & Roach/Trident sales associates and employees.


The contest is open to any fifth-grader in public, private, charter, parochial, or homeschool in the greater Delaware Valley. Students work individually or in pairs to build their own three-dimensional model dream home to be evaluated by a panel of judges from the building industry. All children receive recognition for their efforts and the top three entries earn prizes. The contest is free to enter and relies exclusively on sponsorships to raise money.
