Weld Something Cool, Win Something Cool

Miller Electric kicks off this summer's Welding Project Challenge.

Use your artist's hands and brain and a welding rig to build something in a craftsman-like manner from steel and you could have your choice of a couple of new Miller welders or a plasma cutter!

Miller Electric Mfg. Co., launched its 6th annual Welding Project Challenge, which runs through August 10, 2011, and says contestants can enter in one of three categories -- easy, moderate, and difficult.

Judges will select five finalists from each category based on the project's creativity, quality of presentation, and craftsmanship. Each finalist will win a '64 Custom auto-darkening helmet from the Miller Performance Series, as well as a pair of MIG welding gloves. Once the finalists have been determined, the public will vote online to determine a winner in each category -- to be announced September 23, 2011.

The grand-prize winner in each category will win their choice of a Millermatic 211 Auto-Set MIG welder, a Diversion 180 TIG welder or a Spectrum 375 X-TREME Plasma Cutter.
