The 14th annual Masonry Skills Challenge took place on February 6th during the 2013 MCAA Convention/World of Masonry in Las Vegas where BAC apprentices swept first place in each of the contest's three categories.

The challenge brought together bricklayer apprentices from Union and non-union programs from across the country, who competed at first-, second-, and third-year skill levels. After a fierce three-hour competition, BAC apprentices demonstrated, with commanding authority, the clear Union advantage of locally delivered BAC/IMI training programs. Representing the BAC Ohio-Kentucky Administrative District Council, Jeffrey Price of Local 7 OH, Jeremiah Holland of Local 40 OH, and Noah Spray of Local 39 OH brought home first-place awards at the first-, second-, and third-year skill levels respectively. Local 3 CA apprentices also had a great showing with Erick Reynoso taking second place among first-year competitors and Nick Prater placing second in the second-year skill level.

In addition, at the Spec Mix Bricklayer 500, which is also in conjunction with the World of Masonry, Local 21 Illinois Journeyman Steve Cleveland won the Top Craftsman Award for the highest quality wall.
