Provincial Technical Committees

The Provincial Competition is only possible with the work and ideas of hundreds of volunteers. Each competition requires a Provincial Technical Committee to plan everything from projects and judging to set up and tear down to sourcing equipment.

PTC Members should have training and experience in the trade or technology in which they are participating. Experience on a PTC is essential to qualifying for our national and international volunteer opportunities.
