Seventeen teams of three from Illinois electric cooperatives and municipal utilities across the state competed. Events included the hurt man rescue, 40-foot climb, H-structure course, transformer banking, and the 40-foot head-to-head climbing challenge. Events are created to highlight the skills linemen use to work safely and efficiently. While judging is based on agility, speed, and accuracy, above all, the linemen are judged on safe work practices.
