Cornwall - Mar. 1, 2011 - More than 300 area high school students will put their skills to the test Wednesday during the annual Skills Competition at the St. Lawrence College Cornwall campus.

Carpentry, culinary arts, photography, and welding are just a few of the more than 16 skilled trades and technology events that students will compete in during today's Skills Competition, which runs from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The annual event continues to grow with more than 300 students and 75 judges showcasing the skills and talents applied in experiential education at the secondary level.

The focus of the competition is to provide a public forum that highlights the skills and knowledge students have gained in their particular field of interest. The annual competition is an excellent opportunity for students to demonstrate their talent and creativity putting all of their skills to the test against peers and the current industry standards. Students are given specific tasks to perform, or scenarios to complete, within a predetermined time frame that will be judged by industry specialists.

This year, the TV Video production competitors will have the opportunity to use the facilities at Dreambuilders Studios on Second Street West. All of the remainder of the events will take place at the Cornwall Campus.

Competition winners will have the opportunity to advance to the regional competition held at the St. Lawrence College, Kingston Campus in April and the provincial competition in Kitchener Waterloo in May.

The skills competition event is the result of a unique partnership between the college and the various school boards in the area.
