Tech skills tested at Northern
Montana State University-Northern this week had a mass of students in distinctive red jackets on its campus for the 30th year in a row.
About 300 students, plus their advisers and bus drivers, were at Northern for the state SkillsUSA-VICA conference, which concluded today with an awards assembly at the gym at 10 a.m. and a meeting for the people qualifying for national competition at noon.
Competitors said the conference was both fun and challenging.
"It's been a blast," said Tami Goss, a freshman from Lambert High School. " I don't know how I did on some. It's pretty scary."
