GOLDEN TROWEL AWARD


We would like to announce that the 2017 Golden Trowel Award has been won by the team from TAFE NSW Bathurst – Trent Thomson, Michael Ingwersen and Kevin Sawdy.

The 13th Golden Trowel Award competition was held at TAFE NSW, Nirimba College in Western Sydney from the 15th to 17th October 2017, with teams competing from around Australia.

The biennial Golden Trowel Competition is Australia’s only team blocklaying competition to encourage excellence among apprentices while recognising the valuable skills of young people in a skill-shortage trade. The best blocklaying apprentices from around Australia gathered to compete for the coveted Golden Trowel in the intensive two-day event.

Since its inception in 1993, the event is renowned for producing outstanding young blocklayers who have gone on to win other industry awards and establish a successful career in the industry.

The event this year was an outstanding success and we would like to thank everyone involved including the participants, our members and sponsors for making the event a memorable one.
