This year 6 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.
