    CONGRATULATIONS to the 2018 INTMA High School Machining competition winners!

    On Saturday, February 17th INTMA in partnership with Central Nine Career Center hosted 28 students from 12 different high schools from throughout Indiana at our 15th Annual High School Machining Competition. Students could compete in either Manual Machining or CNC and also competed in a mock interview session. Parents, family, and instructors were also in attendance to support their students during the day-long competition. The top three winners in both the Manual Machining and CNC competitions received scholarships and prize packages including tool boxes, tools, and supplies from our INTMA member organizations and sponsors. The first place school in each competition received a cash prize to support their machining programs.

    Thank you to Overton Industries, who provided tours of their shop to parents and instructors during the competition, giving them a chance to see what a modern machine shop looks like. 

    Thank you to Tony Neary from HAAS who facilitated the Instructor Roundtable Discussion during while the students were competing. Instructors from all of our participating schools were able to share best practices and learn from each other about their machining programs.

    Thank you to Nicole Otte and Central Nine Career Center for hosting this successful event once again. A special thank you to the C9 culinary students and instructors who cooked and served breakfast and lunch to our more than 90 students, instructors, parents, and guests throughout the day!
