Putting their skills to the test

Summary

Mohawk students compete at 2018 Skills Ontario Competition

It was another great year for Mohawk students at the 2018 Skills Ontario Competition that was held in Toronto from May 7 - 9. Mohawk students won bronze in aircraft maintenance and bronze in automotive repair, and a graphic design student won the contest to design the pin that is given to attendees.

Mohawk College Medalists:

  • Aircraft Maintenance – Masyn Fox
  • Automotive Repair – Ryan Gascho
  • Graphic Design (Pin Design Winner) – Jessica Simchison

Technological skills competitions are Olympic-style events that give newcomers to skilled trades the opportunity to put their newly developed skills to the test. Being chosen to compete in the event is a huge honour for students and on some cases can lead to employment after graduation as many employers use the annual competition to scout for talent.
