SIDNEY — The Shelby County Workforce Partnership presented the Ninja Skilled Trades Challenge at Sidney High School, Thursday, Nov. 9.
This activity was coordinated by Sharon Maurice and Stephanie Davis, the Workforce Partnership teachers. The event offered a fun and competitive opportunity for students to try their hands at skilled trades: construction, electrical and HVAC.
The participating businesses included Area Energy & Electric, Ferguson Construction and Slagle Mechanical. Their employees reviewed safety instructions with students and demonstrated how to properly use the tools and equipment.
Students then had their turn to perform skilled trades. While the event was intended to be educational and fun, it was also competitive and allowed the fastest students to win prizes donated by the businesses. Tyler Edwards had the fastest course time of 0:47.03.
