Victor Technologies™, St. Louis, has launched two contests as part of its celebration of the 100th anniversary of its Victor® brand of cutting and gas control equipment.
The "A Cut Above" contest, open to students in cutting, welding, and related programs at secondary and postsecondary schools, will award more than $30,000 in equipment and cash prizes. Beginner students will write a 500-word essay supporting the contest theme, while advanced students will submit a team metal fabrication project that incorporates an oxyfuel, air-fuel, or plasma cutting process.
The "Show Us Your Innovations" 2014 calendar contest will award 12 Medalist 250 cutting outfits — and a Thermal Dynamics® CUTMASTER® 42 plasma cutter as the grand prize — for the best photos and associated captions of the entrant using any Victor or Victor Thermal Dynamics cutting equipment.
Both contests run through September. They are open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec). Contest details and entry forms are available at www.victortechnologies.com/victor100.
