A Kentville student has won a bronze medal at the 2014 Skills Canada competition.
Amanda Blue, who is studying electronics at the NSCC Kingstec campus, was part of the Nova Scotia contingent that attended the 20th annual competition in Toronto. In total, Nova Scotia brought home two gold medals, three silver medals and seven bronze medals.
“Competing in the Skills Canada National Competition not only gives Nova Scotian youth the opportunity to test their skills and strive for excellence on the national stage, but also encourages them to further develop those skills during the training that takes place in the lead up to the event,” says Robin Lorway, acting executive director of Skills Canada – Nova Scotia.
“The 2014 Team Nova Scotia was dedicated to doing their best, and as a result they brought home a dozen medals, plus the Team Spirit Award.”
