Trades Construction Crew Competes in National Competition

The Fort Madison High School trades program has always been a strong program, but in recent years the spotlight has been shining their way. Earlier this year, the Fort Madison High School trades construction crew won the state competition for the third year in a row. This winning streak not only got them noticed by the community of Fort Madison, but on a national level. 

After this year’s state championship, the Fort Madison team qualified for the National Skills USA competition. This competition was held at Louisville, Kentucky with over 100 teams competing in a variety of events. The skills competition consists of 130 events with over 6,400 students in attendance. 

Our bloodhound trades crew finished 24th out of 50 in their construction competition. Their contest in particular went on for more than three days. Our bloodhound participants were AJ Nolting, Danen Seattles, Elton Kruse, and Parker Denning. 

These young men represented our district well with their teamwork and quality craftsmanship. We are excited for their future and the future of our FMCSD trades programs.
