National champion SD42 student-chef earns Youth Work in Trades Award

Carmen-rosa Bilodeau, a recent graduate of the Samuel Robertson Technical culinary arts program, has earned a Youth Work in Trades Award.

The $1,000 prize is awarded to students “for sustained and exceptional work as an apprentice.”

Bilodeau won a national title at the Skills Canada National Competition in 2018 and has been working as an apprentice chef at Swaneset Bay Resort & Country Club.

“Carmen has excelled in every aspect of her career training as a professional chef,” said Brad Dingler, secondary school apprenticeship and trades co-ordinator at SD42.

“What started off as an after-school job has resulted in a passion for culinary arts. This passion was complemented by the benefits of participating in both the Work in Trades Program and Train in Trades Program. She’s well on her way to a rewarding, well-paying career. She is a very deserving recipient of this award.”
