MMHS Wins National Welding Contest

Apr 16, 2018 07:35AM
ESAB Welding & Cutting products held a national contest called “Weld it Forward”, a metal fabrication project to benefit others. Students at Maple Mountain High School won First Place as a result of your voting.

Last month Serve Daily announced that the competition had been narrowed down to three semi-finalists that included Maple Mountain High School. The final phase of the competition would be the result of popular voting. Serve Daily posted a call for voting and our readership, parents, and friends must have responded with great excitement for the local welding project because we now have a national winning welding team and the school receives a $20,000 shopping spree to purchase ESAB Welding Equipment. Congratulations, Maple Mountain High School Welding Team, our community is proud of you.

The team at Maple Mountain High School wanted to create a project that would help others outside of their welding program and school. The result was three identical tables that were given to families in Tijuana, Mexico by team members on a humanitarian trip. The tables are a piece of art with curved base legs and a hexagonal wooden tabletop. Extra features include a “Lazy Susan”, Candlestick holder, and trivets to protect the wooden surface of the table from hot pots and pans.
