Construction apprentices from around the state gathered to demonstrate their knowledge and craft skills at the recent 2013 ABC of Wisconsin Construction Skill Competition held in Green Bay. Apprentices were able to compete in their area of study, including plumbing, carpentry, HVAC, electrical and sheet metal.
In the Carpentry competition, Moraine Park Technical College students took the first three places. Phil Heffner of Fond du Lac came in first, followed by Andrew Daul of Cashton in second and Jacob Stacy of Racine in third.
Heffner, an apprentice at Northcentral Construction Corporation in Fond du Lac, is now preparing for the late April national competition in Birmingham, Ala.
Two Moraine Park students competed in electrical - Kyle Mertes of Waldo and Jacob Konen of Saint Cloud.
