What did they do? And where did they go?
The crew travelled the country putting on amazing performances that showcased each of their skills and talents. As well as the shows, there was the opportunity to take part in workshops with the various members of the team. This was a great way to encourage young people to develop their own talents, to get up, to be active and to try new things.
Finally if attendees wanted the could have their very own skills recorded by the Nickelodeon film crew. These were then featured online in the Nickelodeon Skills zone. And hence entered into the competition for Fruit Shoot Breakthrough Award at the 20013 Skills Awards!
