Tools for Schools Program

MARSHALLTOWN wants to keep the best tools in the hands of students in secondary, post-secondary and apprenticeship programs. With MARSHALLTOWN’s Tools for Schools program, there is something for the needs of every school.

Hands-on education allows students to learn quicker and retain the learned material longer. By creating a job-site reality in a classroom, students can solve the instructional “real life” problems of today in preparation for the working world demands of tomorrow. Additionally, students feel a sense of pride in the work they’ve accomplished and know their new knowledge and skills will help them earn a living in the future.

At MARSHALLTOWN, we know when students train with properly designed and balanced tools, they can measure their own skill level performance – not the performance of the tool. A good tool simply becomes an extension of that student. When students use the right tools, they learn how to work with the tools. In addition to a good technical background and the attitude of a craftsman, students need to train with the best materials and tools at hand, and we would like to help.

Our objective is two-fold: give students the extra incentive to achieve superior results and give the instructors a means to reward work done well.

How the Program Works:

➤ MARSHALLTOWN awards students through their Vo-Tech instructors. All materials are sent directly to the instructor who presents the award to the deserving student.
➤ First, an instructor chooses one student (per school, per term/semester) who has excelled in masonry, concrete finishing, drywall, plastering, EIFS, or tile program.
➤ Next, the instructor nominates the student by filling out the Student Award Nomination Form. Included on this form is the student’s trowel preference.
➤ Lastly, MARSHALLTOWN will send the following award materials to the instructor: a letter of commendation, a certificate, and a MARSHALLTOWN trowel and cap.


For choosing MARSHALLTOWN. I look forward to working with you and assisting you with your classroom needs. If you are interested in the Direct Buy Program, please contact me for a quote or with any additional questions.
