Challenges include the Bradford White Water Heater Installation, CFG Faucet Installation, Kidde Fire & Carbon Monoxide Safety Installation, Kwikset Key Control Deadbolt Test and among other games, the Motorola & Niagara Conservation Race Car Competition.

The 2014 NJAA Maintenance Mania Champion will qualify for the chance to join the top regional representatives at the NAA's National Maintenance Mania Championship this June in Denver, Colorado.

"Multi-family building maintenance professionals are serious when it comes to ensuring the comfort and safety of their residents," said Jean Maddalon, Executive Director of the NJAA. "This friendly competition gives them the chance to showcase a broad range of skills and have plenty of fun doing it."

The competition begins at 2:30 p.m., followed by a "tailgate" awards reception at 5 p.m. Registration is limited to NJAA members; for more information contact the NJAA at events@njaa.com or (732) 992-0600.
