Welding students from Hermantown, Two Harbors, Proctor, Silver Bay, Denfeld, Mesabi East, and Cromwell high Schools will participate in an annual welding competition hosted by Lake Superior College. Proctor High School has won both the team and individual category for the past three years.

Starting at 8:45 a.m., the students, in groups of six, will rotate through four stations over a period of approximately four hours. Winners announced with prizes start at 1:15 p.m. The event will be held at Lake Superior College’s Integrated Manufacturing Downtown Center, 120 North Second Avenue W., Duluth, 55802.
