CAD students in the South and West Washtenaw Consortium at Saline High School had their strongest showing yet in the Michigan Industrial Technology Education Society competition.
It was the fifth year of competing for SWWC students.
SWWC instructor Steve Vasiloff said students entered projects in 20 categories, including areas like photo-realistic renderings of CAD drawings, blueprints, hand drawings and model houses. SWWC students entered 84 projects. All of them made it through to regionals and qualified for the state competition.
"An amazing 40 of them placed top three in the state and earned a plaque," Vasiloff said. "We had nine individual state champions, 16 runners-up, and 15 third place finishes. I am very proud of my entire class and how they contributed to this years success."
Several students went above and beyond, Vasiloff said.
Robert Smith, Emma King, and Ruth Sullivan had really strong showings, and completed more projects than they were assigned for the competition, he said.
