Schuylerville students compete at Regional SkillsUSA Competition

A group of Schuylerville High School students in the Career and Technical Education program, offered through BOCES, took part in the Regional SkillsUSA Competition on March 20.

The regional competition, held at Schenectady County Community College and Stratton Air National Guard Base, pitted the top winners from local competitions from eight technical schools from northeastern New York.

The competition measured a student’s hands-on skills in their chosen field of study including baking, welding, auto repair, and carpentry as well as interviewing for jobs and public speaking. Students were given an assignment that had to be completed within a set time frame. Leaders in business and industry judged the contests.

Congratulations to the Schuylerville students listed below who finished in the top three!

  • Maikela Boyce – 1st Place in Advertising and Design
  • Kiara Caswell – 2nd Place in Photography
  • Sophia Reuther – 3rd Place in Related Technical Math
