The WoodLINKS USA competition is sponsored by WoodLINKS and IWF and focuses on ready-to-assemble (RTA), or knock-down, furniture. WoodLINKS USA is an organization that partners with the wood manufacturing industry to help high-school and secondary-school students learn skills that will help them get jobs in the industry. The ultimate goal, according to the organization, “is to provide our wood industry with the necessary skilled workers to remain competitive at the entry and middle management levels, and help to build and maintain a strong, skilled workforce so that U.S. manufacturers can remain competitive in today’s challenging economic environment.”
Here are the winners:
