Madison County High School construction, work-based learning and agriculture programs recently hosted the school trades fair and skills showcase to help students interact with construction and manufacturing companies.

Many companies and the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia helped gather materials and resources to put on the event, which included a career fair to help students learn and connect with local employers in the area.

After the career fair, students interviewed with employers to help students meet employers in a formal setting to discuss employment. Many students will receive job offers from companies in the construction and manufacturing industries.

Students showcased their skills to employers through a hands-on skills competition in various trades including: cabinetry, carpentry, electrical, welding and plumbing. There were a total of 27 students competing in the trades and the winners received tool prizes in their various trades. Students from Madison County and Hart County Competed. The winners included:
