2013 WorldSkills Cabinetmaking Trials
The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS) will host the WorldSkills Cabinetmaking Qualifying Trial to determine which of the 2010 and 2011 SkillsUSA top-scoring, age-eligible cabinetmaking competitors will compete in WorldSkills Leipzig (Germany) 2013. The event will take place during three days of the AWFS®Fair, Las Vegas Convention Center, beginning Wednesday, July 20 and ending Friday, July 22. Show attendees can watch the students in action, building a project to showcase cabinet construction and woodworking skills including veneering and joinery. The winner will be announced at the WorldSkills booth on Saturday, July 23. The AWFS®Fair Campus in Central Hall will showcase new education features—SkillsUSA, SmartSHOP and Woodwork Career Alliance and will draw crowds and promote industry training.
The two students vying for the chance to represent the U.S. at WorldSkills 2013 will be SkillsUSA national top-scoring competitors. Daniel Berrios, from Bethlehem Vo-Tech School in Bethlehem, Pa. is the high school, gold medal winner from the 2010 national contest. The second contestant will be determined based on the results of the national cabinetmaking contest at the 2011 National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City.
