Annual Student Burner Competition – Alfred E. Smith High School, Bronx, NY

Share With:

This is an annual event sponsored by the New York City and Westchester Chapters of OESP, National Association of Oil and Energy Service Professionals. They have been doing this event for many years. They rotate it among a couple of schools in the city.  The beauty of this event is the fact that competitors in business – manufacturers, service companies, wholesalers –  work side-by-side for the success of this day. They all give up a day of work and many hours of preparation – all for the kids.  Right before your eyes, you'll get to meet the technicians of tomorrow! 

Here are the details:
