SkillsUSA/NIMS CNC Contest Winners

In 2016, NIMS hosted the three CNC Contests at SkillsUSA: CNC Milling Specialist, CNC Turning Specialist and the two year old CNC Technician competition.  127 State Gold Medal winners competed in the various divisions.  71 High School and 56 College representing 37 states.

Haas Automation and Sandvik Coromant are the primary hardware and tooling sponsors for the three CNC Contests.  Haas supplies 50 Haas CNC Simulators and a Haas VF 2 Mill and Haas ST 10 Lathe. Sandvik supplies all cutting tools used in the actual part machining of successful programs. 

The Gene Haas Foundation, NIMS, the precision manufacturing industry’s premier standards and certification body, and the Gene Haas Foundation (GHF), which provides scholarships to schools for students entering technical training programs, are partnering to provide scholarship funds directly to the near-future workforce. The scholarships will be given to select SkillsUSA students, who represent some of the nation’s top young talent in precision machining and metalworking.

The 2016 GHF-NIMS SkillsUSA Scholarship Program awarded $204,000 in scholarship funds to students competing in three manufacturing events at the 52nd annual SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC) in Louisville, Kentucky June 20-24, 2016. Competitors include high school and college students from all 50 states who have won their state-level competitions in CNC Technician, CNC Milling Specialist and CNC Turning Specialist. Upon their arrival at NLSC, they will be eligible to receive a $1,000 scholarship award recognizing their success. Medalists at each of the three competitions at each level will receive awards in the following amounts: Gold: $4,000; Silver: $3,000; and Bronze: $2,000
