CORNWALL – Carpentry, Welding, Hairstyling, and Photography are just a few of the skilled trades and technology events that students will compete in during the 8th Annual Eastern Ontario Secondary School Skills Competition at St. Lawrence College’s Cornwall campus on Tuesday, February 28 from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
More than 250 secondary school students from schools in the Upper Canada District School Board, Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, and the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario, will showcase their skills and creativity applied in experiential education at the secondary level.
The focus of the competition is to provide a public forum that highlights the skills and knowledge students have gained in their particular field of interest. The annual competition is an excellent opportunity for students to demonstrate their talent and creativity putting all of their skills to the test against peers and the current industry standards. Students are given specific tasks to perform, or scenarios to complete, within a predetermined period that will be judged by industry specialists.
Competition winners will have the opportunity to advance to move on to a further qualifying round in Kingston at the St. Lawrence College campus, or directly to the provincial championships depending on their event.
