NFPA booth staff member Beth Kelley explains the NEC Challenge to trade show attendees.

Just this past week, the NEC Challenge was back to give code experts another opportunity to show off their superior code knowledge, as NFPA traveled to Portland, Ore. for the 2013 IEC Convention and Trade Show.

More than 100 participants at the trade show, as well as all those following along with @NFPA on Twitter, had the chance to use their knowledge of the NEC to win an iPad, a copy of the 2014 NEC and the pride of rising to the NEC Challenge.

Participants earned an entry into the drawing for the iPad and a copy of the all-new 2014 NEC by answering just one question from the 2011 NEC correctly. However, the select few who proved themselves worthy could continue on to see if they could earn their copy of the 2014 NEC and an iPad by securing the top spot on our NEC Challenge leaderboard.

The Leaderboard came to a showdown between Dedrea Vaubel of Portland, Ore. and Robert Watkins of Denver, Colo. Dedrea finished at the top of the leaderboard at the conclusion of day one with 13 correct answers. Robert, encouraged by answering five in a row on day one, returned on the second day to get 15 correct answers in a row, securing the top spot and the title of NEC Challenge Leaderboard Champion!

In an equally impressive victory, David Evans of Lawrenceville, GA won the drawing of over 100 entries.

If you want your chance to take on the NEC Challenge, it’s not too late. You can find us in less than two weeks at NECA in Washington, D.C. or stay tuned to @NFPA on Twitter for your chance to earn a spot in the final prize drawing.

Thank you to all the participants and IEC for a fun show! And, congratulations to our winners David Evans and Robert Watkins!
