Each year the AGC Workforce Development Committee honors an outstanding Apprentice from each of the civil trades with an Apprentice of the Year Award. These award winners are recognized for their outstanding commitment to their craft, their leadership skills and teamwork, among other criteria.
Winners receive their award plaque and a check during the Awards Ceremony at the AGC Annual Meeting.
The awards are presented at the AGC of Michigan's Annual Meeting (mid February). For more information contact Barb Strachan.
