  • I was looking for the winners of the fall membership challenge. Can you kindly update that as well?
    It is nice that all the information is clubbed and placed at one relevant location.
    best regards

  • The winners of the Steel Dynamics $500 Steel Contest were John Daldon, Laura Cerully, Chris Ferguson, Michael Renkoski and Liang Quan. The winners each received a $100 gift card to Best Buy and were recognized at the student awards ceremony at MS&T. Students were required to write a one-page essay about pursuing a career in steel making.

    Congratulations to these five students!
