“We don’t often get to show the world how complicated plumbing and HVAC can be and this is the perfect venue for that. Not only does the contest showcase our industry, but it showcases the young people of today who, contrary to what is shown in the news media, can be very committed and dedicated to improving not only themselves, but our industry.”
—Laurie Crigler, PHCC-National Association Vice President
