LBWCC to host SkillsUSA fishing tournament on March 19
February 26, 2020
Lurleen B. Wallace Community College invites the public to participate in the 2020 SkillsUSA fishing tournament, to be held March 19, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. at the MacArthur Campus pond in Opp. Proceeds from the tournament support LBWCC students as they participate in technical skills competitions.
The entry fee is $5 for students and $10 for others. The award for biggest fish is $75, and smallest fish is $25. Participants may register onsite the day of the event.
The annual fishing tournament is the major fundraiser for LBWCC’s SkillsUSA program. SkillsUSA is a national organization serving teachers and students in high school and college who are preparing for careers in technical, skilled and service occupations, including health occupations. SkillsUSA provides quality education experiences for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development.
Proceeds from the fishing tournament are used to sponsor students in local, state and national competitions in which students demonstrate occupational and leadership skills.
Fishing tournament fees and signed releases are required for each person fishing. Minors under age 16 must fish with an adult. No boats are allowed in the pond, and fish must be kept alive to be considered for prizes. Concessions will be available during the tournament.
