Nebo Dis­trict Weld­ing Com­pe­ti­tion set April 18

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING GROWTH -

On April 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Nebo School Dis­trict will host its fi rst-ever Weld­ing Com­pe­ti­tion be­tween five high schools. The theme is “Drift Trikes” and each school is bring­ing five mo­tor­ized and five non-mo­tor­ized drift trikes to the event on this day.

The com­pe­ti­tion with the mo­tor­ized trikes will be on a closed-go kart style course where the fab­ri­ca­tors of the trikes will be timed to de­ter­mine the win­ners. Th­ese par­tic­u­lar trikes will be built by in­ter­me­di­ate/ad­vanced weld­ing stu­dents. The non-mo­tor­ized trikes will be judged within five main cat­e­gories: Best of Show, Best De­sign, Most Unique, Best Work­man­ship and Freestyle. Through this com­pe­ti­tion, the dis­trict hopes to pro­mote ca­reer-ready ob­jec­tives by rais­ing the bar on the skills needed to suc­ceed within the com­mu­nity. Also, ad­min­is­tra­tors from the rep­re­sented high schools have been chal­lenged to race against each other on the timed course with the mo­tor­ized trikes. This should add to the fun.

This event will be held in the north park­ing lot on the Span­ish Fork High School cam­pus lo­cated at 99 N. 300 West in Span­ish Fork.
