More than 400 students are squaring off against the clock and each other in Berks County.

Students from 15 career and technology centers are part of this year's Skills USA district competition.

It's taking place at Berks Career and Technology Center in Oley Township.

There are contests in 44 different fields, including health care, transportation and construction.

From here, students may progress to state and national competitions. Those will be held later this year.
