TeamWorks started in 1999 when Stanley Tools wanted to add a new competition to the SkillsUSA program. industry representatives from manufacturing, consulting, building, insurance, and education met in Montreal to view the World Skills event to get a glimpse of what Skills was all about.

From there we set about the task of designing a competition for the US market to include carpentry, plumbing, electrician, and masonry to build a vignette showcasing all 4 trades.

The first name was TeamBuild however for several reason that was soon changed to TeamWorks.

The first competition was in Barney Allis Plaza in Kansas City, MO with 10 teams. Outside? Yes, we set up the contest, staged the materials and had at it. WOW!, what an eye opener, it was hot, it rained and did I say it was hot?

From there we moved inside to MunicipaL Arena and soon outgrew that venue and moved to larger facilities.

We now are in Louisville KY at the Convention Center and in 2021 will be moving to Atlanta.


This is truly a remarkable event and rather than I try to tell you, why not come see us this year in Louisville? The build days are June 26 and 27 however we are there setting up the week before and close everything down on Friday June 28.


We always are looking for sponsors, judges, volunteer helpers and visitors.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
