Five SCTCC students were eligible to compete at the national level after the statewide competition held in April. The competition was held ocampus, live through Zoom; participants did a project and judges watched, with SCTCC representatives judging in person.
Electrical student Jorgan Kiley of Holdingford received a gold medal in Industrial Motor Control C/PS. He had a three-day competition with orientation, math and code test, and then a hands-on portion.
Electrical student Stephanie Massmann of Kimball received a bronze medal in Electrical Construction Wiring C/PS. She had a week-long competition with orientation, code test, and two hands-on days.
“Both did amazing work and it shows,” said instructor Craig Fischer.
