The Southern Vancouver Island Skills Canada Regional Contest 2013 was held at Camosun College March 1, 2013. This competition gives students a chance to show case their skills in the trade’s fields.

Edward Milne community school sent a team of four students under the supervision of Joel Evans, the Carpentry and Joinery teacher. Patricia Marx and Kaarina Swinburnson entered the cabinet making/joinery competition.

Jake Schuttinga and Codey French entered the carpentry competition.

A successful day for this team as Patricia Marx took first place for the cabinetmaking/joinery competition. Patricia will go on to compete in the provincial competition in Abbotsford.

These students came back full of enthusiasm, and raving about the experience.  Successfully competing in a competition of this nature was challenging, exciting, and a boost to everyone’s confidence.  What’s even more exciting is seeing more young women participating in the trade’s competitions.
