On Wednesday, January 19, 2022, MASONRY MADNESS® will once again be the spotlight during the 2022 World of Concrete in Las Vegas in the Silver Lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center. MASONRY MADNESS consists of: The MCAA's Masonry Skills Challenge, MCAA's Fastest Trowel On The Block, SPEC MIX TOUGHEST TENDER®, and the main event, the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500®.  

The Masonry Skills Challenge is a competition of masonry apprentices in first, second and third year skill levels. The contest is a showcase for skills training in the masonry industry, challenging winning apprentices from regional U.S. and foreign competitions to determine the top masonry apprentice at each level. The exciting competition spotlights 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 must build their project without ever having seen the drawings. They haven't been able to practice, and they can't consult their instructor, employer or anyone else during the competition. They have three hours to complete their projects with the given materials.

Awards are presented to the top three apprentices in each skill level.
