Indianapolis, IN – Wood-Mizer, LLC, the world’s leading sawmill manufacturer, announces the start of the 2013 Personal Best Contest to recognize Wood-Mizer sawmill owners who have fulfilled their dream projects by sawing their own lumber.  This year’s online voting method will expand participation and expose entrants to a larger audience than in previous years.

The contest, which occurs every two years, is open to any Wood-Mizer sawmill owner interested in competing for a share of the more than $20,000 in prize credits being awarded.  The entries will be judged on creativity, complexity, quality, and overall use of Wood-Mizer equipment, with first, second, and third place prizes awarded for each of the 8 categories:

The winners will be featured in an upcoming issue of The Wood-Mizer Way and online at www.woodmizer.com.

The 2013 Personal Best Contest also introduces a new voting method, exposing entrants to a much larger audience than ever before.  Every entry will also be entered in the first ever People’s Choice Award to be voted on by the general public at www.woodmizer.com/pbest.  The new, fully interactive, contest site will allow anyone to browse and vote on the projects, as they are entered, during the months of June and July.  This marks the first time Wood-Mizer has invited the general public to participate in the Personal Best Contest.
