On Wednesday, April 13, top-performing students from across British Columbia put their trades skills to the test at the 22nd annual Skills Canada BC provincial competition.
Competing in areas ranging from automotive collision repair to hairdressing to culinary arts, VCC students impressed the judges as well as the crowds at the Fraser Valley Trade and Exhibition Centre (TRADEX) in Abbotsford. Gold medal winners will represent BC at the Skills Canada national competition in Moncton, New Brunswick in June.
Congratulations to all the winners, as well as the ACE-IT medalists from VCC-affiliated high schools.
