Ebony placed 1st in the Virginia SkillsUSA Leadership Competition in Hampton, Va in March. Her contest was Job Skill Demonstration A in which she demonstrated cornrow braiding. Her presentation consisted of a 5-7 minute demo, a poster with cornrow braiding history and a completed manikin with 5 different braiding techniques. She was judged on clarity of information, educational value, speech, organization, poise and presentation. She demonstrated to a panel of judges how a cornrow is completed. She then qualified to compete in Kansas City at the National SkillsUSA Convention. She placed 17th there. Besides her competition, she attended a Kansas City Royals game, and traded over 40 Virginia State Pins with students from other states giving her the opportunity to meet SkillsUSA students from almost every state.
