Sam Talbot, Graduate
Winner of the Hawke’s Bay Carpentry Apprentice Challenge Sam Talbot paced himself perfectly to claim a place in the national finals being held later this year.
“It’s not a race,” says Sam, who feels he learnt from competing in the last two events. “It’s a lot easier knowing more and this year I took my time.”
Sam was one of eight top EIT apprentices selected to take part in the regional challenge. Each competitor was asked to build a garden bench under pressure of time and watched by shoppers and supporters at the TUMU ITM centre in Napier.
