Get ready to celebrate!

Now that the excitement from the 2018 International Roofing Expo® (IRE) and NRCA's 131st Annual Convention has subsided, it's time to start planning for the next big industrywide event of the year—National Roofing Week. This year, National Roofing Week will take place June 3-9, and once again NRCA is hosting a Children's Art Contest to kick off the festivities.

Sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply, Aurora, Ill., and the IRE, the contest is open to children in grades 1-8 who are relatives of NRCA members and their employees.

This year's contest theme question is: What will roofs look like in the future? Children may also consider what they might look like if they were to become roofing professionals. Winners will be announced during National Roofing Week.

The deadline for entries is April 16. For more information and an entry form, click here or contact Charlotte Norgaard, NRCA's media relations manager, at (847) 493-7548 or
