A special congratulations goes out to our 20 medal winners and in particular, the four Gold Medal-Winning Team Canada 2017 Prospects who will potentially travel to Abu Dhabi in 2017 to represent Canada at the WorldSkills Competition. You have all made your schools, workplaces, Province, and Country proud. It was a distinct pleasure to watch each of you demonstrate your skills. Way to go Team Saskatchewan!
Salmon is a key ingredient in Gintere Cemerkaite’s recipe for success.
The Grade 11 student from Centennial Collegiate was among 36 Saskatoon Public Schools’ collegiate students who took part in the Skills Canada Saskatchewan competition and one of nine who claimed a gold medal and the chance to compete at the national level.
Competing in the Job Skill Demonstration category, Cemerkaite’s salmon dish showcased culinary skills first inspired by a home economics class as an elementary school student. They have since been honed through home cooking and opportunities such as a boot camp led by professional chefs, something that helped fuel her desire to compete.

If you don’t associate skilled trades with intense competition, you have probably never heard of Skills Canada.
The not-for-profit organization has been promoting technological education and engagement in the trades for more than 10 years, hand-in-glove with keen teachers at the secondary and post-secondary level who encourage and groom students to participate in regional and provincial competitions. These pit students against one another to prove themselves in 50 fields, such as refrigeration and air conditioning, mobile robotics, aircraft maintenance and repair—even service jobs such as cooking and floristry.
