Three of the six students who represented ACC at this year's Skills Canada national competition have won medals in their competitions.

"The students on Team ACC were very dedicated and worked hard in each of their competitions," said Julie Ramos, coordinator for the Assiniboine Community College tream. "This was their first experience competing at Skills Canada and most didn't realize the magnitude of this event, but they all competed at their highest level and represented our college with pride."

Melodee Peters won silver in the IT Software Solutions for Business competition. She is a student in the college's Office Administration Program and is originally from Oak River.

Shawnee Holmes won bronze in the Web Site Development competition. She is a student in the college's Interactive Media Arts program and is from Brandon.

Jordan Neufeld won bronze in the IT Network Systems Administration competition. He is a student in ACC's Computer Systems Technology program and is originally from Niverville.

Three other students made it to the national level but finished outside of the medal count: Lucas Tufts, Precision Machining competition; Brett McKee, Mechanical CAD competition; and Holly Campbell, Baking competition.

Since 2005, ACC has brought home two gold, eight silver and nine bronze medals from Skills Canada, a national competition that brings together more than 550 students and apprentices to compete in over 40 skilled trade and technology competitions.

This year's competition took place in Toronto from June 4-7.
