Six culinary students from around the region will represent Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) at the regional SkillsUSA competition later this week after winning CTE-based competitions.
The students and others were honored on March 10 in front of a packed-house of parents, faculty, administrators and peers.
The honorees received trophies, medals and certificates for competing in a series of SkillsUSA competition at the school. They competed in four different categories that tested their abilities on everything from knife skills to table setting.
The top two points earners in each competition — which was judged by area chefs and restrainers — advance to the March 16 SkillsUSA regional competition in Schenectady and potentially onto state and national events.
Those students are listed below followed by their home school districts.

The students will join more than 300 other students from the Capital Region, North Country, Hudson Valley and beyond at Stratton Air National Guard Base and Schenectady County Community College to take part in the regional SkillsUSA competition on March 16.
Besides culinary competitions, students will compete in heavy equipment, electrical, heating, nursing and other skill events as part of the annual SkillsUSA competition.
