The Mould Makers Council of the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) recognized the outstanding academic and technical performance of eight students on March 22, during the groups bi-monthly meeting in Toronto.

“The enthusiasm and positive attitude demonstrated by the candidates is very heartening and bodes well for the future of Canada’s moldmaking industry”, said Award Committee chair, Richard Hornung, president of Horn Ventures International.

Karen Peters was recognized as the winner of the CPIA-sponsored award from Seneca College in Toronto, with Anthony DiDonato and Matthew McNeeley being given honourable mention. The winner from Durham College in Oshawa, ON was Pradeep Jaipaul. Adam Ferguson and Mark Visser were given the honourable mention awards. Andrew Maynard won the award with Madalena Zalewski receiving the honourable mention plaque from the third participating college, St. Clair College in Windsor, ON.

In a similar vein, the Canadian Tooling & Machining Association has added moldmaking as a category to its apprenticeship competition this year. The objective of the competition is to highlight the skills learned by apprentices and to challenge them to demonstrate those skills. Awards and prizes will be presented at CTMA’s general meeting and conference on Sept. 21 at the Talisman Mountain Resort, Kimberly, ON. Donations and prizes are welcomed.
