SkillsBC Regional Competition
Every competitor should be proud of their accomplishments on Friday. It is not everyone who can rise above the pressure and stress of a competition, learn to focus on the task at hand and let their skills and abilities still shine through. According to the judges you all did just that. The marks in each competition apparently were very close!
A tremendous applause to the school district’s career program advisors, shop and technology education teachers - your encouragement and guidance allows students to believe in themselves, their skills and abilities. We know they will go on to be successful in life and hopefully our next generation of Tradespeople!
A special thanks to our spokesperson/emcee – Mike Roberts. You brought the event to another level - your ease with people and wonderful sense of humour was well received and much appreciated. Thanks so much Mike!!
Thanks to our sponsors for their draw prize donations, we had over 155 competitors and they all went home with prizes.
Last but not lease a very large thank you to all the volunteers including our Okanagan College trades and technology department instructors who came out and helped on Friday to make the competitions and explore the trades so successful.
