When:   Sunday, 19th April 2015
Where:  Band Stage, Hillarys Boat Harbour

To celebrate National Youth Week the Food Fibre and Timber Industries Training Council together with the Department of Local Government and Communities will be holding the annual Perth Pallet Challenge.

The Perth Pallet Challenge runs during National Youth Week 10th – 19th of April 2015. It is open to all Wood Trades apprentices who are studying Cabinet Making (Furniture or Kitchen and Bathrooms), Furniture Finishing, Wood Machining, Upholstery and Floor Finishing.

By the 3rd of April apprentices will be supplied with three second hand pallets and asked to use their skill and innovation to 'remodel' them into an art or furniture piece of their own design.  Apprentices will have approximately 2 weeks to complete the task using whatever methods they choose.

On the 19th of April all items will be placed on display at Hillarys Boat Harbour where judging will take place. There are several prizes:
  • The National Youth Week Award - $750 cash (open to apprentices aged 15 to 25)
  • The Apprentice and Traineeship Company Innovation and Design Award - $750 cash (open to all apprentices)
  • People’s Choice Award - $250 voucher from Toolmart or Hafele (open to all apprentices)
All winners will also receive free student membership to the Australian Furniture Association.
