NCMCA Apprentice Skills Contest
The North Carolina Masonry Contractors Association's (NCMCA) best apprentice masons will gather for the annual NCMCA Apprentice Skills Contest at Adams Products Company in Fayetteville, N.C., on Saturday, May 20. Contestants will compete for cash and tool prizes, as well as the "David R. Sigmon" award for top score.
Last year, McGee Brothers Company took the top prize as Josh Morrison finished first, winning $500, the Sigmon Award and a wheelbarrow full of tools. Morrison earned second place in the third-year category in the MCAA International Masonry Skills Challenge in Las Vegas, March 30.
To participate, contestants must be sponsored by a contractor member of NCMCA, supply his or her own tools, have proper safety equipment, and have completed less than 6,000 hours of training before the competition. Complete rules are included with the registration blanks.
A $50 entry fee is required per contestant. Everyone who competes wins prizes.
The contest chairman, Gary Manning, expressed the association's appreciation to Adams Products Company for hosting this year's event, and extends an invitation for everyone to come enjoy the contest and fellowship.
