Six Campbell River students have won the right to advance to the provincial Skills Canada competition after taking top prize in the Skills Canada BC Vancouver Island North regional competitions for culinary arts, 3D computer animation, digital art, and TV and video production.

Timberline Secondary students Griffin Grant and Ethan Ouellette won gold in TV/video production and fellow wolf Raven Baughman along with a partner – who cannot be named due to a privacy request – won gold in 3D computer animation. Another Timberline Secondary student won the gold medal in digital art and a student from Carihi Secondary won the top spot in culinary arts – these students can also not be named due to privacy requests. All six students will now compete in the provincial competition at the Abbotsford Tradex Centre on April 13.

The awards didn’t stop there however, as two more Timberline students won silver and bronze in digital art and another Timberline student won silver in website design. Third place in the culinary arts and TV/video production categories also went to Carihi Secondary students.

The goal of Skills Canada, according to the release on the program and contest, is to encourage students to explore areas of interest in the trades and technology fields. The Canadian Skills Competitions are an Olympic-style competition which showcases students’ technical and leadership skills.
