April 15, 2003
Nine Thomas Edison High School of Technology students took first place awards in the 30th annual Maryland State Skills USA-VICA Championship.

The competitions showcase the best career and technical students as they competed for medals, prizes, scholarships, state recognition, and the chance to continue on to national and international competition.
