High School Welding Competition
Claim the crown as champion welder. Our campuses hold annual welding competitions and AWS certification test days where local high school students can show off their skills.
We held our most recent competitions in Houston, TX in January and February, 2021. We are pleased to announce that we gave out over $20,000 in scholarships to attend Arclabs after graduation. We also sponsored an American Welding Society (AWS) certification day in May 2021 with over 300+ high schoolers in attendance.
