Jacob Bohm wins welding competition

MOLINE — Jacob Bohm, a student at Bureau Valley High School/Whiteside Area Career Center, won a first-place prize of $500 in the second annual High School Welding Competition at Midwest Technical Institute on the Quad Cities campus of the Midwest Technical Institute.

The students were given several different raw pieces of metal and a blueprint. They were asked to produce the project from the blue print using their skills in arc and MIG welding. Students were also required to take a written exam to demonstrate their knowledge on basic terminology and blueprint reading. The winners were determined by their competency in written exam, project assembly and accuracy and overall quality of their welds.
