As I got taken to the Tool Shed for last years piece on the Alabama Skills competition, why not see if they would like this years piece directly? Well I am humbled & pleased to say that they did and this years recap of the 2013 Alabama State Skills Championship is now live on the mikeroweWORKS site in the Tool Shed section.
For those that might not know, not only is Mike Rowe a big supporter of the trades, but his foundation has enabled over 70 students to attend the competition in the last two years via travel scholarships with another 50 slated for this year. This doesn’t include the 250k scholarships available this year, or other items in past years – to learn more about this, opportunities, &/or to donate. With that I can’t wait till this years National championships and as a bonus actually getting to see Mike in person at the Opening Ceremonies – this ought to be a great year & good luck to all the competitors.
