Below are a few comments received from the students about their experiences visiting the Manitoba Legislative Assembly and participation in the Skills Manitoba competition:

“Meeting Wab Kinew”.

“I made friends and laughed- A LOT!! Students need to be made aware of these opportunities because they are fantastic”.

“I will remember the other contestants. I noticed how many of them had different reactions to the competition, whether it was being nervous or confident. I liked that everyone was really dedicated to their competition and did their best to place. It was inspiring to see everyone do their best and work hard for the competition”.

“When they called my name as the Gold medal winner!”

“Making friends!”

“Probably the mistakes I made on my project that I will learn from.”

“The people we were able to meet and the experiences we made together as a team.”

“What I will remember the most of this experience would be: Sitting in the gallery in the legislative building looking down at the government ministers and watch how the government works. They were discussing how to make the best laws for the community’s and the province. Meeting Nahanni Fontaine, Tom Lindsay and Wab Kinew was the highlight of the event. I will remember this experience for the rest of my life and I got to enjoy every moment of it.”
