This year 5 individuals from 4 West Michigan companies competed in the Electrical Craft Competition. Contestants took a written exam measuring industry knowledge followed by the hands-on portion, installing an electrical service under tight time constraints. Each year, the first place winner at the chapter level goes on to compete at the National Craft Championships during the ABC National Convention in the spring.
