Abbotsford students brought home 9 medals from the 23rd-annual Provincial Skills BC Competition. Competitors from post secondary, secondary, middle and elementary schools competed in Olympic-style contests, where peers showcased their trades & technology skills.

The competition, held at the Tradex in Abbotsford on April 5th, involved hundreds of secondary students from across BC competing in a variety of skilled trades and applied technologies. Competitors were invited to the provincial competition after winning at the regional level in March.

Abbotsford students picked up six gold and three silver medals. Congratulations students!
