A number of Surrey students are shining a little brighter this month, after winning silver medals in the recent Skills Canada national competition.
Held June 1-4 in Quebec City, the 17th annual contest brought together more than 500 young people from all regions of Canada to compete in 40-plus trade and technology categories.
After winning gold at the provincial level, Earl Marriott Secondary’s Jason Cho took silver in the national web design contest. The win follows a gold-medal finish in the same category at the 2009 nationals.
A team from Sullivan Heights Secondary – John Strutinski, Kai Singh and Lazar Savic – claimed silver in robotics at the Quebec event.
One other Surrey student, Mandeep Saggu, also brought a silver medal home, in automation and control.
