Details For Entry

Qualified participants must engage in an activity that involves, but is not limited to, working with wood. The endeavor must promote the feeling of pride and satisfaction that is part of working with wood, and encourage the goal of community or self-improvement. Recent winners have included a high school carpentry program in which the students built an entire new house for a low-income family; a retiree who builds wooden toys for sick and abused children, with more than 3,100 toys made and donated in a single year; and a group of students who built dozens of wooden barn owl nests in an effort to repopulate the endangered bird in their area. Minwax® encourages all eligible woodworkers and craftspeople to enter the 2012 program.
