Regional Competitions allow BC students from grade 6 to grade 12 to showcase their talents in the skilled trades and technologies. Students in secondary grades compete in a variety of skills competitions, with those in the lower grades competing in series of Junior Skills Competitions specially designed for their skill levels.
Winners in each competition area are awarded gold, silver or bronze medals, with the majority of those gold medal winners qualifying to compete in the annual Provincial Competition. Regional Competitions, which are hosted by post secondary institutions and secondary schools located within each region, are attended by thousands of student spectators.
Many Regional Competitions also host Discover Trade & Technology demonstrations which provide spectators with hands-on opportunities to experience the skilled trades and technologies.
