In celebration of Northern Illinois Building Contractors Association’s Centennial this year, the NIBCA Education Committee was authorized by the Association Board of Directors to offer a $5,000 scholarship to a college sophomore, junior or senior who is from NIBCA’s nine county area, pursuing a degree in a construction-related field, and is planning to begin a career in the Rockford, IL area. The winner is Nathan Switzer, a junior from the University of Wisconsin – Platteville, who resides in Lena, IL.

Since 2008, NIBCA has awarded scholarships totaling over $140,000. NIBCA is committed to bringing well-educated young professionals back to the area to enhance and improve our workforce and the economic well-being of the region.


Congratulations Nathan!
