Two Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) students represented the province of Ontario at the Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC) in Winnipeg.
The event promotes skilled trade and technology careers to youth by hosting skilled trades competitions for over 500 students from across Canada in more than 40 contest areas.
Caleb Mills from Bradford District High School competed in Cabinetmaking and placed fifth. Missy Archibald from Banting Memorial High School competed in Hairstyling and came in first place. She also won the Best in the Region award with the highest overall score of all Ontario competitors.
“We’re very proud of the accomplishments of Caleb and Missy at the Skills Canada National Competition,” says Steve Blake, Director of Education. “Their achievements speak to their hard work and dedication, and the quality of our skilled trades and technology programs.”
