Fox & Roach/Trident Charities is the proud founding sponsor of the Build A House…Build A Dream Contest for Kids, an annual event benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Chester County that welcomes 5th graders throughout the Delaware Valley to create and display their “Dream House.”


The 16th Annual Build A House event is being held on the morning of Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Church Farm School in Exton, Pennsylvania.


Contestants can work individually or with a partner. In years past, students’ have created model houses designed to withstand tsunamis, houses based on spaceships and bongo drums, houses made entirely of pencils and pasta, energy efficient houses, and environmentally friendly homes.

The students’ creations are judged by local architects, engineers, builders, designers and related professionals. The top winners will earn prizes, and everyone will receive recognition and have a good time! Since 2002, more than 5,000 fifth grade students representing 750 area schools have participated, raising over $600,000 to benefit Habitat’s regional homebuilding initiatives.
