For the 4th time, the vocational training center for stonemasons and sculptors and the Federal Association of German Stonemasons are organizing the popular young talent competition in front of the West Entrance in the outdoor area of the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre. The special thing is that the work area is freely accessible and anyone who is interested can watch the young stonemasons from a safe distance. Because stones will perhaps fly, because real manual work is done here.
The participants have been given a motto “The diversity of stone” after they will now work something creative out of a 140x40x40 cm block of sand-lime brick.
The young talent competition will be opened on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. by Federal Guild Master Markus Steininger and Board Member Stefan Lutterbeck.
The participants this year are:
Theresa Armbruster, Jessica Gläser, Luisa Lüttig, Michelle Täubert, Lola Zach, Hannes Dau, Michael Egli, Jakob Engelbrecht, Tim Fürtig, Mark Hesse, Felix Risch, William Tanner, Nick Clemenz Weber.
Work is carried out during the opening hours of the fair from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Ends Friday at 11:00 a.m. An expert jury will then examine and evaluate the results. In addition to creativity, it is of course also about craftsmanship.
The award ceremony will take place on the same day from 5:00 p.m. at the stand of the Federal Association of German Stonemasons. Guest of honor is the President of the Central Association of German Crafts, Hans-Peter Wollseifer.
This time cash prizes and prizes in kind await the youngsters. AKEMI chemical-technical Spezialfabrik GmbH provides a check for €1,000, the company J. König GmbH & Co., tool factory, stone industry and craftsmen supplies shopping vouchers of the same value, BAMAKA AG // purchasing company of the construction industry will provide high-quality prizes from their offer and the specialist magazine NATUR-STEIN supplies annual subscriptions for the first three winners. The German Natural Stone Association e.V. and the Federal Association of German Stonemasons in cooperation with NATURSTEIN have literary prizes in their luggage.
We wish our offspring every success.
