Southern Telegraph - - News -

Parmelia 3D dig­i­tal game artist Alex Sch­midt will rep­re­sent Aus­tralia at the 44th WorldSkills In­ter­na­tional Com­pe­ti­tion in Abu Dhabi later this week.

The 21-year-old is one of three West Aus­tralians to com­pete in the com­pe­ti­tion, which is the pin­na­cle for young skilled pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in a trade or vo­ca­tional field.

Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Min­is­ter Sue Ellery paid trib­ute to Mr Sch­midt and the rest of the Aus­tralian team.

“The WorldSkills In­ter­na­tional Com­pe­ti­tion gives our most tal­ented trades­peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to show their abil­i­ties on the world stage, while in­spir­ing oth­ers to po­ten­tially gain a qual­i­fi­ca­tion them­selves,” she said.

“The Western Aus­tralian Skil­la­roos are all de­serv­ing of their place on the in­ter­na­tional team and should be proud of their achieve­ments so far.”
