Career Skills Challenge: An Event to Remember


On December 8, 2022, a group of students from North Port travelled to STC in Sarasota to compete in an event called the “Career Skills Challenge”. There were 12 categories to compete at the event and North Port competed in all of them. They gave the students from 8:30 AM to 11:30 for all categories to finish their projects to be judged. The categories ranged in ‘VEX robotics’ to ‘Culinary’ to ‘Juried Digital Art’…it was an event that showed off everyone’s specialty. A couple minutes after everyone was done, everyone was given lunch before the places and overall winner was announced.
