Local high school students now hold a national welding title. 

Three months ago students from Minot High School were gearing up to go to a national welding competition. 

Well now they’ve come back with a top title in hand. 

Gage Jaeger, Austin Guderjahn, and Trey Pellett took 5th place out of 35 teams at the SkillsUSA championships. 

The soon to be professional welders won by building a rocket stove. They explain what it is. 

“It’s a self feeding stove, so you put wood in the front then it goes down and feeds the flame and then it heats up a cook top or a plate heater or a bean heater or a baked potatoes heater in the back,” said Gage Jaeger. 

“It feels good to take fifth place, we could’ve done better but we but we did good,” said Austin Guderjahn. 

The boys say they couldn’t have done it without the help of the community.
