This year, more than 700 electrical experts and professionals across the country have been able to put their knowledge and experience to the test once again in the 2nd year of the +NEC +Challenge. And this week, the +Challenge +will make its final trade show stop of the year in Baltimore at the IEC Electric Expo in booth #210, where we will find the next of our five 2014 championship contenders.
Thus far this year, we’ve traveled across the country to NFPA C&E in Las Vegas, NJATC NTI in Ann Arbor and most recently to NECA in Chicago. From there, three worthy competitors who have demonstrated their superior code knowledge have earned spots in this year’s championship for the chance to compete for the $5,000 grand prize. By Friday, one more of those coveted spots will be filled.
Even if you aren't at IEC to play in person, there are plenty of chances to get in on the NEC Challenge action wherever you are. Additional challenge questions will be released on Twitter by @NFPA throughout the trade show. Simply follow the NFPA Twitter account and stay tuned for your chance to win. You’ll have one hour after each question is released to respond with the correct answer and earn your entry into the iPad drawing.
What’s more, even if you are unable to make it to IEC, you can still earn one last spot in our championship by climbing to the top of the online game's leaderboard.
So will you be joining Jeff Bernson (NECA), J.W. “Jim” Walker (NFPA C&E) and Paul Holum (NJATC NTI) in our championship? Take on the Challenge this week at IEC or NECChallenge.org to find out!
