The MOBOCES SkillsUSA team brought home four medals from this year’s NYS Championships, held last week in Syracuse.

SkillsUSA is a national education-industry partnership that allows students to compete in career-focused contests to demonstrate technical, employment and leadership skills.

Congratulations to:
  • Advanced Culinary Experience seniors Lauren Barker (Hamilton), Cody Csigi (VVS) and Brianna Roberts (Rome) took 1st place in the Culinary Arts Quiz Bowl. This was the first time this event was offered in New York.
  •  Outdoor Power Equipment senior Jacob Brooks (Morrisville-Eaton) placed 3rd in Small Engine Service.
  •  Outdoor Power Equipment senior Ethan Nagel (Hamilton) placed 3rd in Power Equipment Technology.
  •  Outdoor Power Equipment senior Andrew Litwak (VVS) placed 3rd in Motorcycle Service.

These six students were among 22 Career and Technical Education (CTE) students who competed at states after having qualified at the regional meet in February.
