Case Construction Equipment has partnered with ACM/CMA award-winning artist Jon Pardi to launch a contest designed to recruit new operators to the construction industry. Contest winners will have the opportunity to learn how to operate equipment alongside the country music singer, who in addition to working construction in the past has a passion for the industry and Case equipment.

As part of the first-of-its-kind contest, five winners from across North America will win an all-expenses paid trip to the Case Tomahawk Customer Center in Tomahawk, Wisconsin, to go through a three-day training program that will teach them the basics of equipment operation and safety. Winners will also have the option to bring one guest with them to go through the training (travel expenses not included for guest). 

Interested participants will enter by filling out a short entry form at CaseCE.com/Pardi, or receive entry details by texting "CASE" to 31996. Entry details will also be shared at each stop on Pardi's Heartache Medication Tour beginning 10/1/19.  

Deadline for entry is December 1, 2019, and winners will be announced in January 2020. Visit CaseCE.com/Pardi for a full list of rules and restrictions.

"There's nothing like Tomahawk — you operate and learn about equipment while feeling like you're on vacation at a great Northwoods lodge," says Pardi.

"This contest provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to hang out with one of the biggest names in country music, while also learning a new skill that may spark an interest in a future career in the construction industry," says Debbie Townsley, director of marketing – North America, Case Construction Equipment.

"There's nothing like Tomahawk – you operate and learn about equipment while feeling like you're on vacation at a great Northwoods lodge," says Pardi. "I can't wait to spend a few days with fans operating equipment and sharing this experience with them."
