To qualify for the competition, students must be a member of VICA, Vocation Industrial Clubs of America, and have placed first, se- cond, third, or fourth in the regionals prior to this competition. After registration and before the actual competition, the participants took a VICA knowledge test. Then they went to work on their in- dividual projects, which were timed at exactly four hours. While working they were judged on joint fullness, tool manipulation, clean- liness of job, and speed. After the time was called the judges checked the range, plumbness, height, level, squareness and the striking of the joints of each contestant's con- s truction. The project, including the VICA knowledge test, was worth a total of 400 points. -O- C huck Kendrick, left, and Danny Tidwell.
