The challenge is a creative problem-solving program that educates young people about the value of construction industry careers, as well as industry contributions to improved quality of life.
Under the agreement, Volvo is the exclusive official presenting sponsor of the challenge competition for 2010-2014. The AEM Construction Challenge presented by Volvo Construction Equipment includes the challenge finals at the triennial CONEXPO-CON/AGG exposition (2011 and 2014), the challenge program within Destination ImagiNation’s yearly Global Finals, and regional rally qualifying events.
Dennis Slater, AEM president, states: “Volvo has been a team sponsor since the first AEM challenge. This new and greatly enhanced level of support will enable us to extend the reach of the program, and bring more of the ‘best and the brightest’ into the construction industry. We applaud Volvo’s initiative and forward-thinking leadership in helping build the construction workforce of the future.”
