Frank Hurt Secondary took home third place from the recent Student Auto Skills Competition sponsored by BCAA, BCIT and B.C. Ford dealers.
The two-man team of Simrin Dhillon and Jeffrey Meyer, both automotive students, won a 1.6 litre engine and a scanner for the school, and they each took home a set of screwdrivers, a set of punches, a trophy and bursaries.
The contest began with a written exam, and students from the top 10 schools moved on the the hand-on competition.
Teams were then given ten identical vehicles with identical “bugs” to fix within the 90-minute limit.
Kwalikum Secondary won first place and Rutland Secondary took second.
