Reyenga Enterprises was proud to partake in another Skills USA State Skills contest. This contest is held annually in Corpus Christi, TX. The SKills USA State Skills contest allows for students to submit projects for judging and to compete in contests with the winner, taking home scholarship money for furthered education. Projects and contests include woodworking/cabinetmaking, cooking, automotive, electrical, plumbing and many more.
In conjunction with TAWI members we were able to judge over 200 student submitted pieces. Saturday the cabinet making contest began. Contestants were given a blueprint, from which they had to create a cut list. After their cut list was made the students were able to begin cutting and building their nightstand. Each student was judged on safety, neatness of workstation, operation of machinery and the final judging of the overall craftsmanship of their cabinet. The students were able to shake off their nerves and create beautiful nightstand pieces as seen in this picture.
The winners of the cabinet making contest are:
– Eduardo from Juarez-Lincoln HS (Charles Lutz Memorial $1500 College Scholarship & $1,500 travel expense award)
– Jennifer from LEE HS ($1,000 College Scholarship)
– Kyle from Dale Jackson Career Center ($500 College Scholarship)
