The Carroll County Career and Technology Center is one of six semi-finalist schools in the ESAB WeldItForward Student Contest. The semi-finalists were chosen through the essay contest phase. Welding students Madelynn McClester and Fletcher Frotten worked as a team on the project.
The semi-finalist schools are now participating in the WeldItForward metal fabrication project. Each school participating in the project was awarded an equipment package with a value of more than $6,900. The schools also received identical project kits containing an assortment of metal shapes and components, all of which must be integrated into a fabricated project using some or all of the ESAB equipment provided. Students may use supplementary metal and equipment. Show more
The student team must thoroughly document the project build 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 one high school and one post-secondary school as grand prize winners.
Each grand prize winning school will receive an equipment “makeover” 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.
