2018 WI Truck Tech Competition

The 2nd Annual WI Truck Tech Competition took place May 18-19, 2018 at Fox Valley Technical College in their J.J. Keller Transportation Building. Fifteen technicians competed in the two day competition. The first day technicians were given a briefing and later took the 50 question exam. Day two consisted of thirteen hands on stations to test their skills and knowledge. Overall winners and station winners were announced that same night at the awards banquet at the Bridgewood Hotel & Resort in Neenah, WI.
