The 2015 Playhouse Showcase Competition marks the 6th year of an exciting partnership with the Asheboro / Randolph Home Builders Association. Hurricane Joaquin might have dampened the efforts for the Asheboro Fall Festival, but there is no dampening the spirit of this friendly competition among carpentry and masonry students at ERHS, PGHS, THS, SWRHS, and WHS.
Projects are set to be completed by October 30th. From November 1st until December 4th, the playhouses will be displayed at Lowe’s Home Improvement in Asheboro until the Asheboro Christmas Parade where the raffle will end and one lucky winner will select the playhouse of their choice. Then beginning December 6th, there will be an online silent auction to accept bids on the remaining 4 playhouses. The online auction will end at noon on December 19th, followed by judging and a live auction at 1:00 PM.
