Chapter holds First Annual Spoon, Cup and Saucer Contest.
Three students were awarded scholarships for their entries in the AFS Wisconsin Chapter's First Spoon, Cup and Saucer Contest.
Twenty individuals entered the contest, which invited high school and college students to create the iconic spoon, cup and saucer casting that represents the mastery of the metalcasting process. All students were invited to the evening event which included dinner, judging and the winner announcements.
First place and $1,000 went to Joe Greuel, Port Washington High School, who made his submission via the investment casting method. Second place and $500 went to Luke Chatfield and Jayson Wetzel, Port Washington High School, and third place and $250 went to Alex Rasch, Univ. of Wisconsin-Platteville. Each student was also given an AFS Certificate of Achievement Award.
The casting submissions were judged by 70 of the chapter's "Old Timers"--individuals who have served in the industry for 40 years.
