Cedar Bluffs students earn honors

Four Cedar Bluffs students earned medals recently at the SkillsUSA State Leadership Conference.

The school had 11 of its SkillsUSA members taking part in the virtual conference that was conducted the past few weeks.

Junior Caleb Baustian captured first place in electrical construction wiring. He will go on to represent Nebraska at the National Skills Leadership Conference in June.

Senior Audrey Hudson placed second in first aid and CPR. She had to demonstrate on a mannequin and explain what she was doing and why.

For the state-only bridge building competition, freshman Jennifer Mahrt placed second after designing and constructing a scale model of a bridge.

Senior Peyton Bartholomaus finished third in the culinary arts competition.

While the competition traditionally takes place in Grand Island during the course of four days, the 2021 event was conducted online.

The judges would watch the students through Zoom and score them based on their technique and safety tools used. Additionally, each of the students took a test on the industry they were competing in.
