2023 Nova Scotia Skills Competition – Winners Announced!

The 2023 Nova Scotia Skills Competition season has finally come to an end and after offering 36 different competitions, with just over 250 registered competitors from across the province, it’s been another successful season!

This season we welcomed the return of school tours of the competitions. We showcased competition action, hosted a variety of Try-A-Trade® activities, and provided skilled trade and technology career exploration to nearly 1500 students from schools across the province!

Thank you to all our partners, hosts, volunteers, coaches, staff, and PTC members that helped us to once again, make it happen. We can’t give enough praise to the amazing people and organizations that help to deliver the Nova Scotia Skills Competition each year.

Competition was fierce, and throughout the two months of events it was amazing to see so much talent on display. Competitors brought their A-games as well this season, with a number of the contests being decided by single point margins! Whether they medaled or not, we’d like to recognize the efforts of all of the competitors that participated in this year’s competitions. Thank you for challenging yourself and putting your best work on display.

Without further ado, we are proud to present the medalists of the 2023 Nova Scotia Skills Competition.
