For the sixth consecutive year, Women in BICSI will sponsor a female competitor in the BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge, which will take place during the BICSI Winter Conference and Exhibition, February 10-12. Women in BICSI currently is seeking applicants to be their sponsored competitor.
Last year’s Women in BICSI-sponsored competitor, Ashley Kellison, finished in second place in the ITS Installer 1 Division of the competition.
The Women in BICSI sponsorship covers travel expenses, and all selected competitors receive a complimentary registration to the 2020 BICSI Winter Conference and Exhibition, which will be held in Tampa, FL.
The deadline to apply to represent Women in BICSI in the competition was Friday, January 3, 2020. After reviewing applicants, Women in BICSI will select this year's competitor.
