HARTFORD — Prince Technical High School in Hartford will be hosting the CT SkillsUSA Competition on Thursday and is expected to attract more than 50 competitors with trade and leadership skills that will be judged by industry leaders throughout the state.
The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Several students will compete in trades such as plumbing, electric and cabinetry. And other students will compete in leadership skills such as job interview and public speaking.
The cabinet making competition will be judged by Paul Corey, local rep for Planit Solutions, an International CAD CAM company and by Michael Martin of MJ Martin Woodworking in East Hartford.
“It is important to give back to the community. The youth in CT’s Tech schools are the future and the technical schools provide that foundation that students need to succeed in today’s job market,” says Paul Corey.
