Miller Electric Mfg. Co. last week launched its fifth annual Welding Project Contest: The Welding Showdown, a competition to showcase the welding skill and talent of anyone in the industry. Contestants will submit a project in one of three categories — easy, moderate, and difficult. Judges will select two finalists from each category based on the project’s creativity, quality of presentation and craftsmanship. Each finalist wins an ArcStation 30SX welding workbench, an Arc Armor Welding Protection Package and an all-expense-paid trip to Miller’s headquarters in Appleton, Wis. Entries are due by August 10.
Finalists will receive a tour of Miller’s headquarters and compete head-to-head to build a project, selected by Miller, within a set time period. Miller will supply all materials and tools for the Welding Showdown.
The grand prize winner in each category wins their choice of a Millermatic211 Auto-Set with MVP MIG welder with a Spoolmate 100 spool gun, a Diversion 180 TIG welding package, or a Spectrum375 X-TREME plasma cutter. For information on contest rules and how to enter, visit MillerWelds.com/Showdown.
