Silver finish for Fraser Heights web designer

Surrey teen places second at national skills competition.

Heyang (Lucy) Wei has some new hardware after demonstrating her software expertise at the 2013 Skills Canada National Competition in Vancouver.

The youngest and only female competitor in her category, the 15-year-old Fraser Heights Secondary student won silver in the website development category.

Wei competed over 12 hours in two days on the weekend to complete a number of required modules in website design and coding.

“It was definitely a tough competition that showcased her remarkable talent and skills,” said Susan Chow, principal of career education for the Surrey School District.

In addition to winning the silver, Wei was recognized for her aptitude in the design portion of the event and awarded a copy of Adobe Design and Web Premium CS software.

She also won an iPad mini for developing the top website in a recent contest sponsored by the BC Superintendents’ Association.

Team BC finished with five gold, nine silver and eight bronze medals. Also winning a silver medal was 2006 Semiahmoo Secondary graduate Nathaniel Printis in the welding category.

Started in 1994, the Skills Canada National Competition remains the only event of its kind in Canada. It is the only national, Olympic-style, multi-trade and technology competition for young students and apprentices in the country.

Every year, the event brings together more than 500 young people from all regions of Canada, along with their parents and advisors, to compete in some 40 trade and technology areas. The competition provides an opportunity for young Canadians studying a skilled trade or technology to be tested against exacting standards and against their peers from across the nation. Students vie to win the honour of being crowned the best in their chosen discipline.
