Maintenance Mania® is a national competition where maintenance technicians compete against each other in skill-based games built around common maintenance activities. The competition also includes a pinewood derby style car race where there cars are made out of maintenance supplies.
NAA affiliates host Maintenance Mania® events across the country to recognize maintenance technicians with awards, prizes and bragging rights. Winners from each local event then get a chance to qualify for a spot at the National Championship held at the annual NAA Education Conference & Exposition.

The 2016 competitors tested their maintenance skills and knowledge of the industry in eight challenges as they competed to earn the title of the Maintenance Mania® National Champion.
This year's local champion, Matthew Ortiz from Osuna Apartments had an overall combined time of 1:59:353!
Racing against the clock, these maintenance professionals competed against each other to see who was the fastest at key control, faucet installation, icemaker installation, fire & carbon monoxide safety installation, toilet conversion, water heater installation and ceiling fan installation. The finale of the event concluded with a race car competition, where the competitors built a model car using at least one maintenance product or part and race it down a pinewood derby-style track.
