Humber is no stranger to Skills Ontario and has applauded many students throughout their years for their hard work and dedication to the competitions. This year marked the 30th anniversary of Skills Ontario Competition. Held at the Toronto Congress Centre in Toronto, the not-for-profit organization is dedicated to the promotion of the skilled trades and technologies. The organization promotes and celebrates youth who are pursuing careers in the skilled trades and technologies as students apply their learning in competitive settings.
At the competition, entrance scholarships were awarded to secondary school students who won gold, silver and bronze in all the competitions in which Humber students competed. These scholarships, valued at approximately $100,000, were designed to attract secondary school students to pursue their education in at Humber.
The winning gold medalists will advance to the Skills Canada National Competition later this month held in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
