Watch the industry’s finest young masons compete in Vegas
MCAA’s 2014 Masonry Skills Challenge
By Tim O’Toole
The MCAA’s Masonry Skills Challenge is a competition of masonry apprentices in first, second and third year skill levels. This exciting competition highlights our industry’s finest young masons and focuses attention on careers in the masonry industry.
Contestants are divided by experience level, ‘First Years’ who are just entering the trade through ‘Third Years’ who are just about to enter the workforce as journeymen. Each level is given a project to build appropriate to their know-how. The catch? The projects are a complete surprise!
Contestants have three hours to complete their projects with the given materials. Awards are presented to the top three apprentices in each skill level.
Watch the future of the masonry industry in action starting at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, January 22 in the Gold Lot during Masonry Madness Day.
