Global manufacturer Victor Technologies, based in St. Louis, recently announced its 2012 “Innovation to Shape the World” contest. The competition is for students in welding and cutting programs at secondary and post-secondary schools, as well as technical and vocational schools.


Three beginning (first or second year) students will win $250 by submitting a 500-word essay supporting the contest theme, and student members on three intermediate/advanced teams will each win $500 for completing a welding and cutting project. In addition, six schools associated with the winners will receive a cutting, welding and gas control package valued at $4,000.


“The contest, along with our regular 35% discount to educational institutions, demonstrates our commitment to giving students and schools the inspiration and tools they need to shape their future,” said Martin Quinn, Victor’s CEO.


Entries will be accepted until October 30, and the winners will be announced at the 2012 FABTECH show in Las Vegas, November 12-14. The contest rules, entry forms and submission guidelines are available at
