The OTSC is the single largest provincial Technological Skills Competition held in Canada hosting 1900 competitors. DSBN had 26 students competing in 21 challenges this year against the best in the province. Our students' success is a testament to their effort, skill, determination, the outstanding technology programs at DSBN and the dedicated mentorship of their teachers and industry partners.

Gold medalists, Joann Vu and Jon Louws, have earned the opportunity to join Team Ontario and compete on the national stage at the Canadian Skills Challenges to be held June 6 - 8 in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are great ambassadors for their schools, the DSBN and the province of Ontario and we wish them the best of luck in Vancouver.
