April 17, 2024 (Brockville, ON) – This past weekend, four medals were brought home by Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) students from the Skills Ontario Qualifier at St. Lawrence College, Kingston.

The event, held April 13, brought together top competitors from 12 eastern region school boards to showcase their skills, with the aim of securing a spot to represent their boards at the provincial level.

Medalists will now advance to the highly anticipated Skills Ontario Competition, scheduled to take place in Toronto on May 7.
