Chico High School's "Sonar TV" student broadcasting team is headed to Kansas City, Missouri next week to compete in the national "Skills USA" competition.

This, after winning the R.O.P-based "Skills USA" competition in California in April.

The team paid a visit to the Action News Now studios to meet with Anchor Linda Watkins-Bennett for some tips before heading out. They also got the chance to watch some shows, and tour the control room to see how we use our equipment to produce a news broadcast.

Natalie Hanson and Noah Denney serve as news anchors for the team, Sarah Jellison is the floor director, and Phillip Long is the technical director. All four graduated from Chico High earlier this month, and will start college in the fall.

They will be among 15 thousand students and advisors converging on Kansas City for the 50th annual "Skills U.S.A." competition in areas like welding, carpentry, computers and video production. 435 of the attendees are from California, and they'll all be staying at the same hotel.

We wish the "Sonar TV" team the best of luck!
