Welding competitions showcase welding training and career opportunities for future welders.

Each year, local area high school students compete in a welding competition by demonstrating their proficiency in basic to advanced welding and torch skills learned in high school. First, second and third place teams receive a trophy to display at their school!

Strong community support is received from welding companies and professionals who generously donate supplies and materials.
