The Young Woodworking Professionals competition recognizes outstanding projects and the young wood pros who create them.
The 2024 competition is now open for entries (deadline is March 8, 2024). Feel free to read more about all of the contest details below, or if you're anxious to get started, you can submit an entry.

The 2024 #YoungWoodPro contest winner will receive a $500 monetary award from Woodworking Network and will be featured on and in an upcoming issue of FDMC magazine.

In addition, Grizzly Industrial is generously offering the winner one of their Grizzly G0899 - 10" 2 HP 115V/230V Cabinet Saws, which has a retail value of $1825.

How to enter for 2024
Entries are limited to one per person, and entrants must be between the ages of 18-35, (by year’s end 2024) and be a professional woodworker. Judging of your project is based on the photo you post so good photography is essential.

During that time young woodworking professionals are encouraged to post a picture of their woodworking project along with a brief description on Instagram, X (formerly Twitter), or at Woodworking Network’s Facebook page using the hashtag #YoungWoodPro. When posting on X or Instagram, be sure to also mention @WoodworkingBiz (X) or @WoodworkingNetwork (Instagram). Alternatively, you can enter directly with our online form. The deadline for entry is March 8th, 2024.

Submit an entry
Due to the wide range of the submitted projects and their applications (i.e., functional, decorative - furniture, boat, artwork, etc.), judging consideration will be given to:
  1. Overall look/presentation of the project
  2. Complexity of construction and design
