Inside the Carpentry CompetitionLogoCarpentry-Badge

Contestants are judged on accuracy, ability to read and interpret blueprints, workmanship and the proper use of tools and materials. The contests are planned by technical committees made up of industry representatives to test the skills needed for successful entry-level performance as a carpenter.

Winners of the carpentry competition are decided based on the combined results of a written exam and evaluation of the competition project by a panel of journey-level judges. Due to their tremendous importance, safety practices and procedures are also judged as a component of each contestant’s overall score.
