2014 OTSC Secondary Scopes

On May 5 and 6, 2014, over 1,900 of Ontario's top students will compete in the largest skilled trades competition in Canada, the Ontario Technological Skills Competition. This year, we celebrate 25 years!

The scopes posted below are contest specific documents that give you all the information you need to compete, or to prepare your student for a successful experience at the Ontario Technological Skills Competition.

Our volunteer Technical Committees work hard to prepare the contests and the scopes for this incredible event. If the scope you are looking for is not yet posted below, please click the link to "past scopes" to get a good idea of what the contest includes. The contests change each year, but the majority of the skills tested will be similar year to year.

We anticipate the majority of 2014 scopes to be posted in the month of January, but past scopes are available as a reference now. Please be sure that if you do refer to a past scope, that you check the website at a later date for the updated 2014 scope.

*Qualifying Contests - secondary level students are required to first compete at a Qualifying Competition in order to advance to the OTSC, in the following contest areas:  2D Character Animation (Team of 2), Carpentry - Individual, Culinary Arts, Small Powered Equipment, TV & Video Production (Team of 2) and Welding.

Scopes are provided in Adobe form only.  If you do not have this application, you can download it for free from Adobe's website by clicking on the image below.
