Hannah Rosencrantz from J.A. Williams High School and Austin Rehman-Stenz from Cold Lake High School are both heading to Moncton to compete in the Skills Canada National Competition next week.
Hannah and Austin earned gold medals at the North East Regionals in March. They advanced to Provincials, but that competition was cancelled due to the Edmonton Expo Center being designated as an Evacuation Centre for Fort McMurray residents. A lottery was used instead.
The Skills Canada National Competition takes place in Moncton from June 5 to 8. More than 500 students from across Canada will take part in over 40 skilled trade and technology competitions.
Hannah will compete in the two-day baking competition, during which she will have to bake bread and buns, two kinds of cookies, two kinds of French pastries, and a cake with the theme “One Thousands and One Night.”
Austin will make pork tenderloin, mussels Provençale, fish chowder and a cake as part of the two-day culinary arts competition.
