Tucson's construction champions ~

Recently more than 100 Pima County JTED construction students (representing 9 area high schools) competed for championship recognition in masonry, electrical, plumbing, and carpentry at Catalina Magnet High School. The carpentry competitors worked in teams to build a planter that matched the precise specifications they were given. The winners will be able to compete in the State SkillsUSA competition in Phoenix to be held Marh 27-28. This is a fantastic program! To learn more about the competition requirements, go to www.azskillsusa.org
