The National Craft Championships invites more than 175 competitors to vie for gold in 15 competitions with skills on display across 12 crafts. Each competition consists of an online exam, typically based on the Contren® Learning Series curricula developed by the NCCER. The online exam accounts for 25% of the total score. Held on the second day, competitors are tested on their skills during a six-hour project. This practical performance test accounts for 75% of the total score. The competition objectives are to demonstrate safety along with craft interdependency and teamwork, simulate working conditions where planning is critical to success, and highlight individual leadership and workmanship skills as the project is assembled and completed.
