From March 1 to March 3, up-and-coming tradespeople from 33 states competed in the National Craft Championships held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Of the six craftworkers sent by three local ABC chapters to compete in the event, two won medals in their trade field:
Robert Caskey with Fidelity Engineering (a member of ABC Baltimore) won both a silver medal and safety medal in HVAC.
Johnathan Davis with Shaprio & Duncan (a member of ABC Metro Washington) won a silver medal in plumbing.
Now in its 30th year, the NCC is an intense four-day event sponsored by Associated Builders and Contractors, where young men and women from across the country compete in one of 15 competitions, representing 13 crafts.
