15th Annual Tradesperson of the Year Awards

Established in 2006, the Virginia Ship Repair Foundation’s Tradesperson of the Year Awards recognize excellence in the ship repair industry workforce. From numerous nominees, two winners are selected: a senior tradesperson with more than five years of industry experience, and a junior tradesperson with fewer than five years experience in their chosen trade field. These nominees and winners are truly the best of the best, and showcase the exemplary talent and work ethic that make Virginia’s ship repairers the best in the world.

Remember: the VSRF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so all sponsorships are tax deductible and go toward valuable initiatives that enhance and expand the future ship repair industry workforce.

Sponsorship of this program allows continued acknowledgement of excellence in our workforce!
