Dozens of community college students and apprentices from across the province are in Pictou County today for a skills competition.
Every spring, Skills Canada – Nova Scotia presents this Olympic-style competition.
The event brings together students and apprentices from across the province to compete in their chosen skilled trades and technologies. Bronze, silver and gold are awarded to the top competitors, with most gold medalists advancing to the Skills Canada National Competition which will be taking place in Vancouver, B.C.
At the event, organizers also present a career showcase, an interactive exhibition featuring hands on displays that highlight careers in skilled trades and technologies. Students from numerous local schools were scheduled to visit the event today.
