Three Surrey secondary students won bronze medals at the 2019 Skills Canada National Competition in Halifax.

Elgin Park Secondary student Reilly Ouwerling won bronze in car painting, while Fraser Heights Secondary duo Junniel Abeto and Vince Pascual took bronze in 2D character computer animation.

The students, along with Sullivan Heights Secondary baker Isaac Carswell who placed fourth in his category, earned a spot to compete at nationals after winning gold at the provincial level.

The Skills Canada National Competition in Nova Scotia welcomed more than 550 students and apprentices from across the country who competed in 44 skill areas, representing six skilled trades and technologies, including transportation, construction, information technology, service, manufacturing and engineering, and employment. The goal and objective of the competition is to engage Canadian youth and promote the diverse careers that are available in the skilled trades and technologies. It is the only national multi-trade and technology event of its kind for young students and apprentices in the country.

The complete list of medalists from the 2019 national competition is available HERE. Next year's competition will be held in Vancouver.
