The results are in – PWSD students bring home the hardware from Regional Skills Canada Competition

April 27, 2015

Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWSD) congratulates all students who participated in the Regional Skills Canada Competition (RSCC) on April 23-24 in Fairview, AB, and is pleased to announce that nine students received medals at the event.

To qualify for the 23rd Provincial Skills Canada Competition planned for May 13-14, 2015 at the Edmonton Expo Centre, students competing in the regionalized events at the RSCC in Fairview had to achieve either a first- or second-place finish. PWSD students earned three gold medals in the culinary arts, intermediate hairstyling and junior hairstyling categories; and a silver medal was awarded for cabinet making. Also notable were three bronze medals in the welding, intermediate hairstyling and junior hairstyling categories.

Only those receiving gold medals in the non-regionalized events, including fashion technology and outdoor power and recreation equipment, will move on to the Provincial round of competition. In the non-regionalized events, PWSD students achieved a gold medal in outdoor power and recreation equipment, and a silver medal in fashion technology.
