Every year the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) hosts a local Craft Championship Competition where 3rd and 4th year apprentices in HVAC and Sheet Metal programs compete to win an all-expense paid trip to compete in the ABC National Craft championship.
The event is attended by students throughout the area where they’re able to watch the competition go down, play games and do activities at the various booths, take a ride in a scissor lift, and meet representatives from local construction companies.
The event is open to the public and lunch will be served between 11am – 1pm. Please come join us for an afternoon of construction fun and workforce development.

The Craft Championship was born out of a desire to promote early workforce development for the construction industry, made all the more urgent by the labor shortage.
ABC is currently looking for sponsors, volunteers, and/or those willing to host a booth at the event. Contact Laurie Kendall at email@example.com or 503-726-5440 for details.
