Skills Canada National Stage | Empowering Women in Trades

This year was Skills first year back in person on a National Level since 2019. It was exciting to have participants back in person competing for gold!

The Style Academy Artificial Nail Educator, Leanne Brown, headed to Vancouver this May to represent Saskatchewan as a judge for the National Esthetics Skills Competition.

This event is the only national, multi-trade and technology competition for students and apprentices in the country. By providing a forum where young Canadians can compete at the national level, SCNC provides hands-on work experience related to skilled trade and technology careers.

Skills competitions are a great opportunity to see women represented in trades, not only as competitors, but also at the judging level.
