    Any of you guys entering this? Even if you don't reach far, the exposure alone makes it worthwhile.

    I went and did a little digging because this caught my attention. Below is the website for WorldSkillsJamaica

    The site seems to be lacking a lot of information on the competition mentioned above and no pics etc. But I guess it can only get better

    i dunno if its a "who won" kinda competition cos many skill areas are involved and participants are award on a gold/silver/bronze basis while the top performer from each skill i think gets some sort of scholarship?! (scholarship verification needed). and some are chosen for the world skills in Canada. its a fun event i tell you. i was apart of the first one way back in 2003, and someone says the exposure........

    BTW, the medals are awarded to everyone. its like CXC u are awarded based on your performance........................
    Back to square one....., back off the ground now........
