The events will take place on February 13-17 at Ufa State Petroleum Technological University as well as at some other educational facilities.
"Over 100 of the best students of 60 educational institutions, aged from 16 to 22, will take part in the WorldSkills competition, while 150 school kids from the country’s 31 regions, aged 10 to 17, are expected to participate in the JuniorSkills event," the source said.
The WorldSkills event includes 23 competencies: software solutions for businesses, web design, system administration, entrepreneurship, floristics, graphic design, preschool teaching, video editing, welding technology and electrical work to name a few. Most of the competencies are in line with the most in-demand professions.

According to her, winners of the regional competition will have a chance to participate in a nationwide event.
