This spring, BIA Cares awarded a first place prize to a middle school student competing in the Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair.  BIA Cares industry professionals judge middle and high school categories pertaining to the construction industry and award cash prizes for those science projects dealing with construction-related problems.

“BIA Cares participates in the Science Fair every year in the hopes of encouraging the next generation to continue fostering an interest in the construction and real estate related fields,” says Pete Reeb, Principal with John Burns Real Estate Consulting, who is also a BIA Cares past president and Life Director.

Reeb has chaired the judging of the Greater San Diego Science Fair for 20 years for BIA Cares; awarding over $15,700 in prizes.  Pete Reeb was joined by BIA Cares Judges:  David Norvell (Norvell HOA Consulting & Training), Trish Edmondson (Cornerstone Communities), and Veronica Martinez (H.G. Fenton Company).
