If you’re in the United States or in any of their territories and you’re a great welder, you can join the annual SkillsUSA’s National Welding Competition. This three-day competition begins with a meeting between the advisers and the students with the contest chairman explaining what will happen on those three days.
The following details are also given on the first day:
The welding they need to complete
The processes that should be used
The positions they need to apply to weld the project
The types of metal they’ll weld
The time they’ll be allowed to spend for the project
To be fair, high school students will have different projects from college and post-secondary students.
The orientation will be followed by a question and answer forum where students can clarify and ask pertinent questions regarding the projects they’ll perform. A 50-point quiz with choices will then be conducted to check whether the students understood what was presented. Later on, the students will be given a minute to present a topic in front of three judges. On competition day, the students will be grouped and will go through various testing areas where they need to showcase their talents in welding.
