Congratulations to Vancouver Community College (VCC) baking and pastry arts students for claiming two golds, two silvers, and one bronze medal in the Skills Canada BC 2021 provincial competition held virtually on Sunday, April 18.

In the 2021 competition, six VCC students from both post-secondary and Youth Train in Trades (secondary) programs competed safely in online challenges from their individual homes or schools. The post-secondary students were challenged to make intricate chocolate boxes and decadent truffles, while our high schoolers tackled bar cakes and macarons, all with dazzling results!

We’re extremely proud to announce that VCC students claimed multiple top spots in both categories – a testament to their talent and commitment, as well as their quick adaptation to blended online and on-campus learning over the past year.
