JFLF Awards Introduction Letter
Dear Foundation Supporters:
We thank you for your support and interest in the James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation. We continue to expand our awards program through additional prizes and categories.
While doing this, we have been diligent in maintaining or expanding our participation in SkillsUSA, FFA, 4-H, AISC National Steel Bridge competition and book donations to schools.
The Foundation will continue to sponsor the other Awards Programs again in 2015. We invite you to participate in two ways:
- Please enter a project or paper in the welding contest or compete in the SkillsUSA contest.
- Please consider our low cost instructional books listed on www.jflf.org as this is the sole source of our funding.
- In an effort for continual improvement, please review our new website upgrade. We value your opinion and would like your comments and/or suggestions. Please click on the "Contact JFLF" link on the website to comment.

The Jury of Awards for each program is selected from various branches of engineering, education, business or industry or from any other suitable source by the Foundation’s
Chairman or Executive Director. Each Entry is judged anonymously. The Jury of Awards receives only an unidentified original copy of the Entry. If a Juror through prior knowledge is able to
recognize any of the entrants, that Juror will not participate in judging that particular Entry. The Jury’s decision will be final in all cases.
Patent and Publication Rights
The existence of patents will in no way affect ratings by the Jury of Awards nor will the Foundation have any financial interest in any patent rights.
The James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation retains publication rights to all Entries and may publish any Entry at its discretion, unless publishing restrictions are indicated on the Entry Form.
As a contribution to scientific progress and to promote industrial progress through education, the James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation produces and publishes an extensive catalog of technical books. Just a few
