Created to recognize outstanding students (secondary, post-secondary, and apprenticeship schools) each term for exemplary work: Marshalltown's Student Award Program awards the nominated student with a complimentary trowel.

How the Program Works:
MARSHALLTOWN awards students through Vo-Tech instructors. All materials are sent directly to the instructor, who then presents the award to the deserving student.

Instructors, first, choose one student (one per school, per term*) who has excelled in the masonry, plastering, drywall, concrete, paint or tile trades. 

Next nominate the student by sending us the student's name and desired trowel (including type, size and pattern or part number, if known). Nominations may be sent in on either official school letterhead or on MARSHALLTOWN's Student Award Nomination Form.

Then, MARSHALLTOWN will send the following award materials to your attention: a letter of commendation, certificate of merit, complimentary trowel, and MARSHALLTOWN cap.

*NOTE: Schools offering separate programs in more than one trade may nominate a student for each trade (brick, concrete, plastering, drywall, paint, or tile).

Our objective with the Student Award Program is to give students the extra incentive to achieve superior results and instructors the means to reward work well done.


MARSHALLTOWN will sell direct to secondary, post-secondary, and apprenticeship schools. The prices are favorable to your budget, and the freight will be prepaid (min exclusions) by us within the continental U.S. All you need to do is send in, on your school letterhead, the instructor's name, the school's name, phone and fax numbers, and a copy of the school's tax exemption certificate if applicable.
