2021 marks the 10th year since the NZCB Apprentice Challenge was first held.  The Challenge recognises emerging building talent from across New Zealand, entries have tripled since the inaugural event with carpentry apprentices from 19 regions competing for the title. The challenge is open to apprentices employed by a NZCB member or enrolled with ITAB (Industry Training Association Building). The challenge is a great opportunity to celebrate the hard work and craftsmanship of up and coming New Zealand builders.
