Competition started in August of 2013 when more than 4,000 maintenance professionals competed in qualifying events hosted by 60 local National Apartment Associations. Contestants were eliminated until the top 20 finalists were selected to compete in Denver at the National Apartment Association Education Conference and Expo.
Maintenance Mania® is a national program offered by NAA and presenting sponsor HD Supply (HDS). The event consists of several skill-based contests created from common maintenance activities. All games are timed to determine the fastest competitor in each game and overall. There is also a model race car competition where participants build their own race cars prior to the event, aiming to have the fastest and most creative car built out of maintenance supplies.
Each NAA local affiliate has their maintenance technicians compete individually to win various local awards and a chance to compete at the National Championship held at the annual NAA Education Conference & Exposition.
