On Wednesday, March 23rd, the NYCDCC Labor Technical College (LTC) hosted its 47th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Contest. This popular event, which is highly anticipated each year, once again not only served as a showcase for the skills apprentices have learned during their last four years at the LTC, but it also provided a competitive contest, a platform for industry trends, and a demonstration for state-of-the-art tools as well.

Although there is always a variety of activity taking place at this event, the main draw continued to be the 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Contest itself. As has consistently been the case over the years, dozens of apprentices took part in a friendly, but highly competitive contest that challenged them to complete projects in their various trades. Carpenters, Floor Coverers, Interior Finishers, Millwrights, Timberman, Dockbuilders, and Cabinetmakers all had their chance to display the various skills they learned and perfected in their time at the LTC. The end results of the varying projects were eye-catching, as the contest displayed the unquestionably brilliant craftsmanship of the graduating class.

Overall, this contest proved once more that all of the apprentices who participated in this event are winners and will be respected professionals in their trades for a long time to come. With that in mind, the NYCDCC Benefit Funds would like to extend its congratulations to the following participants and winners in the 47th Annual Graduating Apprentice Contest:
