On 2/6/2015 two of our commercial baking students competed at the SkillsUSA regional competition at Oakland community college, Orchard Ridge campus. At this competition several local high schools and technical centers brought about 100 students together for a chance to put their skills against each other in the battle towards the State competition. Most of the other schools have been competing for more than 20 years. But, this is the first time that Athens has joined in the competition. SkillsUSA offers literally hundreds of different areas in which student scan compete. The three that were present on this day were Culinary Arts, Restaurant service and Commercial baking. We have been practicing for this competition 2-3 times per week after school as well as at least several hours on the weekend for about 2 months. Students are given 10 different categories from which they may be asked to prepare different items. They are not told what the items will be until they arrive. So, they need to be well prepared for anything. This year they were asked to prepare 7 items in 4 hours: 6 cookies, 6 knotted rolls, Cinnamon rolls, blueberry muffins, a fluted pie crust, puff pastry items as well as a 9 inch cake that is fully decorated to order specifications. Their hard work resulted in a 19th place and a 5th place finish. This is very respectable for a first effort! Both of the girls are juniors and they are eager to take what they have learned and improve next year.
