The student team must thoroughly document the project build (see Contest Rules) with images, videos, plans, blueprints and/or bill of materials. ESAB will then post the six final projects online for the general public to vote to help us select two grand prize winners: one high school, one post-secondary school.
Each grand prize winning school will receive an equipment “make over” of their welding program. The welding instructor will work with their local ESAB sales representative to choose the specific ESAB equipment that best suits their school’s needs, for a total retail value not to exceed $20,000 per school. ESAB equipment may be across the following categories:
- Welding systems
- Manual or automated air plasma systems
- Crossbow cutting systems
- Oxy Fuel cutting outfits
- Filler Metals
- Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
In addition to a Sentinel welding helmet (a value of more than $300), students on the two grand prize winning teams will each receive a $250 cash prize.
