Master Builders has announced that its Apprentice of the Year competition for 2020 will officially be open to the public to attend.

Taking place this Saturday, June 20, the top apprentices from across the region will go head-to-head in a practical challenge.

Following the recent announcement of the $1.6 billion Trades and Apprentice Package, now more than ever it is important for us to get behind the trades, says Master Builders CEO, David Kelly.

“It will be fantastic to see our apprentices go head-to-head this weekend at Master Builders CARTERS Apprentice of the Year and showcase a career in the trades.

"The competition comes at a great time following the Government’s recent announcement to keep supporting apprentices who are so important to the building and construction sector."

The competition will be taking place from 9am to 11am on Saturday at CARTERS Tauranga on Birch Ave.

Tauranga MP Simon Bridges will be at the event to show his support for the competitors.
