Forbes Road Career and Technology Center will be sending students to a state trade skills competition in Hershey in April.
Students will be competing in categories such as advertising design, computer networking and security, automotive collision repair and others. All will be asked to complete tasks designed to prove their proficiency in their area of study. Students earned their way to the state competition by coming first, second or third in regional contests held in December and January.
“It's extremely impressive for those kids to accomplish this,” said Elizabeth Lanshcak, the school's career and marketing specialist. “Heading to state competitions only shows their determination to become a professional in their chosen field of study, respect for the industry and the willingness to achieve recognition of a specific skill set that will benefit them after they graduate high school.”
