FOUR local students are celebrating after coming up trumps in a national contest.

Computing students Chris Marshall, Jiri Kores, Lloyd Wyngard and Richard Karus, from Stevenson College, took home medals in the WorldSkills competition’s Scottish technology heat, which was held in Fife last month.

The WorldSkills contest sees participants from across the country demonstrating their knowledge of a specialist field within a dedicated education area, including science, technology and the arts.

Interactive Media 2 competitor Chris Marshall, 19, who lives in Balerno, was gifted gold for his work on the day, while fellow student Jiri Kores also picked up the top spot after his entry to the Microsoft section of the contest was judged best in class.

Lloyd Wyngard, 20, picked up silver in the Interactive Media 1 category, while Richard Karus, 21, won a bronze medal for his entry in the Cisco section.

Chris and Jiri, 26, who lives in Lochend, will now go forward to the UK finals, which will be held in Birmingham in November.
