Four Abbotsford students won medals at the Skills Canada event held in Moncton

Four Abbotsford students won medals at the Skills Canada competition last week in Moncton, New Brunswick.

The team of Ashley Lewko and Ryan White of Robert Bateman Secondary won gold in 2D character computer animation.

Brendan McDougall and Kurtis Mar of Yale Secondary took silver in 3D computer animation.

Also representing Abbotsford at the event were Teagan Lansell of Yale Secondary in architectural CAD and Pvitter Brar of Abbotsford Traditional Secondary in welding.

The competition was held June 5 to 8, drawing more than 500 competitors in over 40 skills areas, including welding, plumbing, electronics, baking, hairstyling and carpentry.

The students qualified for the nationals after winning gold medals at provincial events. The Skills B.C. competition took place at Tradex in Abbotsford in early April.

Every two years, competitors selected from the Skills Canada Competition form Team Canada and compete at the WorldSkills event. The next one is in October 2017 in Abu Dhabi.
