The Crooked I Gaming Center in Chesapeake Beach recently donated $500 to Calvert Career and Technology Academy students to assist them in attending the Skills USA Competition in Kansas City.

The competition is a national nonprofit organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, according to a Calvert County Sheriff’s Office press release.

In the Crime Scene Investigation competition, which is a component of the Calvert County Public Schools’ criminal justice program, the students learn the correct procedures for processing mock crime scenes at school throughout the year. Students are taught skills including measuring, photographing, sketching and processing crime scenes, the press release states.

Students from Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties then compete in a tri-county competition and the three top teams from that competition move on to a state competition, where they compete against the top schools from Maryland. According to the press release, the winner from the state competition advances to a national competition in Kansas City, where they will compete against top teams from across the United States.

To make a donation, make checks payable to the Calvert Career and Technology Academy. Checks can be dropped off at the sheriff’s office to the attention of Sgt. Ronald Naughton, or they can be taken directly to the technology center at 330 Dorsey Road in Prince Frederick.
