Miller Launches its First Welding Helmet Design Contest ‘Hood Hysteria’

Miller is inviting fans to submit designs and vote for their favorite helmet for a chance to win a Limited Edition Series helmet inspired by the winning design. One grand-prize package and two finalist packages will be awarded to the top designers.

Miller Electric Mfg. Co. is tapping yet another creative resource for the next helmet design — its fans. Miller debuts “Hood Hysteria,” its first Limited Edition helmet design contest, which runs from April 12 to May 31, 2010.

Miller will choose the top three finalists and beginning June 21, 2010, fans can vote online for the grand-prize winner. The winner will be announced on June 30, 2010.

The grand-prize winner will receive a $3,100 welding package and the first helmet produced from the limited-edition run of 1,000 helmets inspired by their winning design. The remaining helmets within this Limited Edition Series will be available for sale beginning in November 2010, while supplies last.

The helmet complements the Grand Prize package consisting of a Millermatic 211 Auto-Set with MVP All-in-One MIG welder, Spectrum 375 X-TREME Plasma cutter and Arc Armor Welding Protection products, including a leather jacket, HD MIG/stick gloves, metalworker gloves, and Shade 5.0 safety glasses.
