The annual Limestone Skills Competition, Secondary/Elementary is the first of many Skills events designed to draw attention to our student’s passion for learning while showcasing the skills they are acquiring in a field of their choosing. The Limestone Competition is an excellent Reach Ahead Activity where students can demonstrate their talent and creativity in a test against peers and sector related judging criteria. Students are given specific tasks to perform or scenarios to complete within a
predetermined time frame that will be evaluated by a variety of industry specialists in a very challenging post-secondary environment
