Md. C.T.E. students finish well at national contest

-

More than half of Maryland’s competitors finished in the top 10 in their individual categories at a national contest for students in career and technical education classes (CTE).

Maryland’s SkillsUSA delegation brought home 22 medals from the 50th Annual National Leadership and Skills Conference, held in Louisville, Ky., in June.

A team of the state’s most talented Career and Technology Education (CTE) high school students showcased their skills in 89 career and technical competitions. Demonstrating exemplary CTE training, Maryland students challenged 6,000 other student champions from all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.

Maryland students competing in Electrical Construction Wiring, Graphic Communications, Industrial Motor Control, and T-Shirt Design are officially among the best in the nation, returning with gold medals. Silver medals were awarded to students in Basic Health Care Skills, Dental Assisting, Early Childhood Education, First Aid/CPR, Interactive Application and Game Development, Major Appliance and Refrigeration Technology, Principles of Engineering and Technology and Promotional Bulletin Board. Bronze medals were awarded in Commercial Baking, Digital Cinema Production, Humanoid Robotics and Job Skill Demonstration.

SkillsUSA Maryland has a statewide membership of 5,100 high school students. Members have consistently demonstrated their expertise and professionalism while participating throughout the year in a variety of leadership and competitive conferences.

The Maryland State Department of Education, in cooperation with business, industry, and education partners, coordinates two annual statewide conferences to prepare students for this rigorous national competition.

Maryland CTE students representing 23 counties and Baltimore City competed at the 2014 SkillsUSA State Championships held at Anne Arundel Community Television, Anne Arundel County Fire Training Academy, Center of Applied Technology North, CCBC Catonsville, Conference Center at the Maritime Institute of Technology, Earlbeck Gases and Technologies, Lincoln Culinary Institute, North County High School, Printing Specialist Corporation and Stevenson University.

In April 2013, Voxitatis reported on the Maryland state conference, attended by winners in various CTE areas of study. Our report described an interview with the outgoing student president of the Maryland CTE organization.
