According to Professor Mark Matthews, who also attended the competitions, “To be chosen to compete alone is a great honor, but to win all three areas is amazing!”

Now in its 40th year, Caterpillar developed the program as a reward and recognition of the achievements by the apprentices and their dealers. The U.S. was invited last year for the first time to enlarge the competition to represent a broader selection. Each apprentice also is recognized for achieving his or her respective dealer award.

Congratulations to Xavier!
