The Ontario Technological Skills Competition (OTSC) will be held at RIM Park in Waterloo on Monday, May 4 (Elementary Technology Activity Day) and Tuesday, May 5. Featuring 67 skilled trades and technologies contests, and 2,000 competitors from high schools and colleges across Ontario, it is the largest skilled trades competition in Canada.
Trillium Lakelands District School Board is proud to have 14 students competing across a range of industry disciplines and an additional 120 students who will be participating in elementary workshops, competition viewing, and tours.
Over 20,000 spectators will come out to RIM Park over these two days to witness the skills of Ontario’s young people in action. From contests in plumbing, culinary, aesthetics, and automotive service – to name only a few – competitors are judged on their skills related to their field, as well as their job interview skills and related soft skills. The OTSC offers a unique opportunity to see Ontario’s top students competing to demonstrate that they are the best of the best in their chosen skilled trade or technology field.
Winners are presented with gold, silver, and bronze medals, and may also receive monetary awards at the closing ceremony held at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex on Wednesday, May 6. Many winners are eligible to move on to the Skills Canada National Competition in Saskatoon at the end of May.
