Our annual Apprentice Contest took place May 6, 2023, where top apprentices from each trade had the opportunity to compete for prizes and notoriety. We had great sponsorship from so many of our signatory contractors, providing us with the ability to present some fantastic prizes. This contest would not be possible with the help and support of our contractors, suppliers, members, and pre-apprentices.

The annual apprentice skills contest is taking place on Saturday, May 6. The apprentices will be building their projects from 7am-12pm and the awards ceremony is anticipated to take place at 1pm.
