(LEX 18) The public is invited to bid on Tiny Houses designed and constructed by students in eastern Kentucky school districts. 

The Building it Forward project is sponsored by the Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative. The project hopes to help students interested in learning skills for a real-world vocation.

All houses will be on display for the public starting on June 8 at 412 Roy Campbell Drive in Hazard.
