AWFS 2013 Fresh Wood Student Competition 2013 Dates Revealed

The Association of Woodworking and Furnishings Suppliers® (AWFS®) is now accepting entries for the 2013 Fresh Wood Student Woodworking Competition to be held from July 24-27 in Las Vegas. The competition, which will be showcased at the Fair is open to full or part-time students in an accredited high school or post-secondary woodworking or related program that are transitioning into a career in woodworking or design. Post-secondary schools include colleges and universities as well as trade, art and union apprenticeship schools.
At the 2013 AWFS®Fair, the display of Fresh Wood finalists will be located in the Gallery, an area in the supply hall that includes the AWFS bookstore, the theater and a lounge. This gives attendees and exhibitors an opportunity to network with the students and teachers in the competition and expose the students to the different companies and products within the industry.

Final judging will take place on Tuesday, July 23 at the AWFS®Fair. Winners will then be announced at the Fresh Wood awards ceremony, which will take place on Friday, July 26 in the AWFS theater and is open to all attendees and exhibitors. First place, second place and honorable mention awards may be given out in each category and at each school level. A “Best of Show” award will also be selected from all first place winners. A People’s Choice award, for which all AWFS®Fair attendees and exhibitors have the opportunity to vote, will also be given. All finalists will be featured in the sixth volume of the publication Fresh Wood, which will be available for purchase in late 2013.
