This year's competition, co-sponsored by FCI and National Floor Trends magazines, included a number of past competitors as well as a collection of fresh faces. The Feb. 1 awards ceremony, at which the first- and second-place winners were recognized, saw two first-time winners standing alongside a pair of veteran trophy takers.
The blueprints for next year's contest are already on the drawing board. Installation mechanics interested in competing in the 2003 event should get in touch with the WFCA this summer.
And now, the 2002 WFCA National Installation Contest winners:
First Place, Carpet: Kenneth J. Frango
First Place, Resilient: Mike Suffia
Second Place, Carpet: Kevin Twohig
Second Place, Resilient: David R. Rowden
