Skills Sheridan recognizes top students in nine skilled disciplines
Nearly 30 students received a cash prize and a medal for demonstrating excellence in their respective discipline at the fourth annual Skills Sheridan competition, which took place March 28 at Sheridan’s Magna Skilled Trades Centre.
The event tests students’ education and training by giving them a limited amount of time to complete challenging tasks in discipline-specific activities. More than 100 students participated in this year’s edition of Skills Sheridan, which featured competition in architectural technology and design; electrical installations; industrial mechanic millwrighting; IT office software application; mechatronics; plumbing; precision machining; web design and development; and welding.
In addition to recognizing top students in each event, Skills Sheridan helps faculty determine which students will represent Sheridan in the upcoming Skills Ontario provincial competition, scheduled for May 1-2 at the Toronto Congress Centre. “It’s an honour to celebrate the skill and talent of our Sheridan students,” said Greg Royal, Associate Dean of the Magna School for the Skilled Trades who served as the event’s master of ceremonies.
Numerous vendors also attended the competition to demonstrate new equipment and speak to students about career opportunities.
