Instituted as a public education campaign by APWA in 1960, National Public Works Week (NPWW) calls attention to the importance of public works in community life. Through the Week and other efforts, APWA seeks to raise the public's awareness of public works issues and to increase confidence in public works employees and professionals who are the often unsung heroes of our society.
NPWW is traditionally sponsored and observedduring the third full week in May. During this week, Hawaii Chapter will maintain an exhibit of various recent public works projects to energize and educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives. When available, the exhibit includes state and city proclamations to commemorate the Week. Hawaii Chapter also participates in community service projects in observance of NPWW.
