2020 IDEAL National Championship Canceled

IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 IDEAL National Championship electrician challenge, to protect and support the electrical community during this time. The industry-wide skills competition will resume in spring 2021 with registrations opening early next year and the 2021 Finals occurring December 15-17 in Nashville, Tennessee. In the meantime, IDEAL will still be honoring, supporting and connecting with the trade by means of innovative digital competitions and programs throughout 2020.
