John Deere incorporates public awareness for students interested in construction

Posted by Green Fun Store on 5/12/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
Classic John Deere is known throughout the world for its reliable equipment and versatility. Unlike some manufacturers, John Deere isn't only concerned with the present. The major lawn care and farming equipment provider also factors the heritage of farm life and the future of its growing company into the equation. By reaching out to students through programs and sponsorships, John Deere is ensuring a productive future for younger generations and our country in general. With the sponsorship of a program known as the Construction Challenge, the manufacturer helps students learn about the construction industry.

This year, a team of students from Barlett, Illinois, was sponsored directly by John Deere. According to, the Construction Challenge provides real-world hands-on experience to the students, with the aim of encouraging them to take positions in the industry. The program is hosted annually by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) at the Las Vegas ConExpo.

Before the finals of the competition, teams of five to seven students square off in nine regional rallies throughout the United States. The top 24 teams end up advancing to the championship finals in Las Vegas.
