Washington County Technical High School students competed in the Maryland SkillsUSA leadership and skills championships.
Students across the state competed at several sites in the Baltimore area in many skill levels, including culinary, cosmetology and more. Out of the 67 participants from the tech school, 36 earned medals.
Teachers at the school explain what their students learned during the competition.
“3D visualization, and game development which is called interactive applications and game development, both teams won a gold medal, so yay to my kids,” Keon Billings said, the animation teacher for Washington County Technical High School.
“One of my students placed first won a gold medal for culinary arts, to my knowledge this is the first gold medal winner we’ve ever had in culinary arts,” Tammy Twigg, the culinary arts instructor. Some of the winning students will be moving on the national competition in Kentucky come June.
