Finalists for BAC/IMI International Apprentice Contest Chosen
Journal: September - October 2003
Block | Tile | Stone | Cement | Marble | Plaster
Six crafts were represented: brick, cement, marble, plaster, stone, and tile. Contestants, who had worked their way up from local and regional contests took a written test and participated in a day-long mockup competition.
When the dust settled, 30 talented BAC apprentices (five Finalists plus two Alternates per craft) earned the right to meet again at the Contest Finals in Washington, D.C. on October 18th to compete for the distinction of top apprentice in their crafts and a 2003 Ford F150 pickup truck.
In addition to these activities, extensive hands-on and demonstration areas at the National Building Museum will feature the diversity of skills and the craftsmanship representative of the PCC and terrazzo crafts.
