A pair of Birch Hills students will be representing Saskatchewan on the national stage after taking home top spot in the cooking and baking competitions at the Provincial Trade Skills Competition in Saskatoon on April 8.

Grade 10 student Kendall Shore and Grade 11 student Megan Evans took home first place honours thanks to their culinary skills, which earned them a spot at the national competition in Winnipeg.

Winning was a surreal moment for the two students.

“We were so excited, and we were so excited for each other because we’ve been through all of this together,” said Shore, who won the cooking category. “It was like an overwhelming feeling of excitement.”

“I was really sacred before (the decision),” chuckled Evans, who took first place in the baking category. “I was freaking out, then when I won I was just really excited.”

Both students had to prepare a specific set of dishes within an allotted amount of time before being judged on the finished product.
