A selection of the handiest local students took part in the Skills Canada BC regional competition at Westview Secondary Friday.
Contestants competed in one of two disciplines: auto service or cabinet making.
Greg Erho, instructor for BCIT School of Transportation at Westview was overseeing the six students taking part in the auto competition.
“It’s a ton of work but it’s nice to see the students enjoy it,” he said.
“It challenges them, and all the stuff they’ve been learning since September they’re putting into practice.”
