Amy Sayler of Wellington, a student at the Lorain County JVS Adult Career Center, took second place in June at the National SkillsUSA Competition in Louisville, Ky.
She earned a silver medal in the nail care technology event, competing against contestants from around the United States in the post-secondary division.
The nail technology event is designed to assess each competitor’s preparation for employment and recognize professionalism in the cosmetology field. Winners were evaluated on the application of acrylic, tip and wrap, nail polish, nail art, and pedicuring. They also took a written exam and were required to demonstrate strong oral communication skills.
Fellow cosmetology students Stormy Kyer of Sullivan and Kassie Scafe of Elyria also attended the conference. Kyer served as Sayler’s nail model. Scafe participated in events in the hair division.
SkillsUSA is a national organization that serves high school and college career-technical students enrolled in trade, industrial, technical, and health-related programs.
