The Clackamas Regional Skills Competition in one for high school level students off their talent. It took place on Feb. 26 at Clackamas Community College. It is a competition for high school students to compete in various subjects such as art-visual, engineering, journalism, music, mathematics, and theater arts along with many more.

Several Lakeridge students competed in this competition for mathematics. These students came out with some of the top individual and team awards.

“As for Lakeridge students as a whole, I am very impressed. We nearly swept the Math II competition as individuals and as a team some of our students got first and second,” Gregg.

For the individual competition, which was level six Calculus were Jack Dickinson with first place, Talia Chen with second place and Spencer Greg with third place. For the team competition, which was level two Advanced Algebra through Calculus with first place were Jack Dickinson, Talia Chen and Kevin Fu, and with second place Spencer Gregg, Nathan Barba and George Irving.

Those interested in competing should also know that first place gets a 12 credit tuition waiver, second place gets eight credit tuition wavier and third place gets four credit tuition wavier for placing at Clackamas Community College and then also going to state, which takes place at U of O in May.

The skills competition will be held again next year for LHS students to show their excellence and they are already excited because of the opportunity it has given.

“It was a great experience overall and I plan to compete next year,” said Gregg. “It was a really good opportunity for us all as we are getting opportunities which we hadn’t for seen would give us credits.”
