Students show off their skills in a regional competition
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) — The Region Five Skills USA competition was in full swing Friday at Southern Kentucky Community and Technical College.
The event is held annually and allows high school students to compete in leadership and technical skills competitions.
Competitions range from automotive technology to welding, architecture, graphic design and even public speaking and job interviews.
Students gain hands-on experience with SKYCTC faculty and staff and learn about college opportunities.
Those who place in the top three in their category will receive a medallion and the opportunity to qualify for the national competition.
After not being able to host this event due to COVID-19, the Director of Admissions said, “What of course excites us this year is that it’s the first time we’ve hosted in two years and that students are back on our campus and able to experience it at our facilities.
The winners of today’s competition will be available on the SKYCTC Facebook page.
