The Greater Essex County District School Board, Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board and St. Clair College have teamed up to provide high school students with the opportunity to compete in skills competitions, giving them the opportunity to practice what they have learned in school in a competitive environment on Saturday.

In total thirty five students from twelve local high schools will compete in Culinary, Architectural CAD, Precision Machining and Carpentry. Students from Assumption, Catholic Central, Holy Names, St. Anne’s, St. Joseph’s, Century High School, General Amherst, Herman, Kingsville, Leamington, Sandwich Secondary and Vincent Massey will all take part.

For some students, this will be a qualifying round to move on to Skills Ontario in Waterloo May 5th and 6th.

“We appreciate St. Clair College spear heading this initiative to provide our senior students with an opportunity to showcase their talents and skills in the culinary, precision machining, carpentry and design areas,” says Susan Friedl, Coordinator of Experiential Learning / OYAP at the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board.

The competition is being held at St. Clair College’s main campus starting at 9:15am with closing remarks and medal ceremony taking place at 1pm in Room 320.
