Western Iowa Tech gives students a taste of the real world

SIOUX CITY, IA (KTIV) --

Siouxland's high school students had the chance to get a taste of potential careers, and have a little fun in the process.

Students competed in Western Iowa Tech's skills competition with the winner grabbing a 500 dollar scholarship.
 
About 300 students turned out for today's event competing in events like welding, graphic design, and auto body work.
 
College officials say it was a fun way to prepare students for the future.

"It gives the kids a understanding of what type of education they need to get a job when they get out of high school and college," says Martin Reimer of Western Iowa Tech.

Western Iowa Tech hosts the skills contest every year.
