The Canadian Sheet Metal Apprenticeship Competition was held last summer in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Scott Wilcox represented our SMART Local Union 280 at this event.
Competitors worked on a copper lobster trap project and many spectators admired the skills and craftsmanship of the sheet metal apprentices. Here is what the contestants had to say about the competition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vq7uxDbB2hE&t=201s

Scott is also the inaugural recipient of the Franco Pederzini Memorial Award. Apollo Sheet Metal Ltd. has established a perpetual scholarship award in memory of Franco Pederzini, a SMITB Trustee/SMWTCS Director (2018-2019).
