APPLETON, Wis. (May 2, 2017) — Miller Electric Mfg. Co. announces the #whyiweldcontest giveaway to recognize enthusiastic welders and celebrate the things that inspire them. It’s one of three different giveaways in 2017 that are part of the WE BUILD campaign, which recognizes the many ways that welding makes our world a better place.   

“Miller wants to know and share the reasons that drive people to weld and create something new — the things that inspire and make us feel proud,” said Rich Thompson, vice president of marketing, ITW Welding. “This giveaway honors all the good things about welding, because Miller knows that we build better when we build together.”

One welder’s story will be featured in the next Miller ad campaign. From May 1 through June 30, participants can enter the giveaway by publicly sharing a story, photo or video with the hashtag #whyiweldcontest on Instagram, Twitter or at Participants can also enter by completing an entry form on the Miller Facebook page or at

At the end of the submission period, all entries will be reviewed and five finalists selected. The finalists will appear on a voting page from July 21 through Aug. 4, where participants and welders can vote for their favorite. The finalist receiving the most votes will be named the winner and will be featured in a WE BUILD print ad and video. The winner will be announced in August.

In addition, all #whyiweldcontest entrants will automatically be entered for a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Miller headquarters in Appleton as part of the WE BUILD VIP Experience giveaway.
