ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks at Albany Technical College are celebrating a big achievement. 

Two students will be going to the 'Skills USA National Competition.'

The students won gold at the state competition last week in dental assisting and welding sculpture.

Dennis Benton and Cemon Ross are the students.

Benton said he worked on his project for several months. 

He said winning state and now moving to the national competition gives him motivation to move on with his education.

"I loved welding before I started that but once I took the metal, that was basically just metal and then I made something out of it," said Benton. "It's just awesome."

The national competition is in Louisville in June. 

Other Albany Tech students placed at the state competition in nursing, masonry and cosmetology.
