On Friday, October 11, AITEX and ATEVAL organised the second AITEX Olympics at Ontinyent Municipal Sports Centre. The aim of the day is to make young people aware of the textile sector as a future innovative employment prospect.
Participants took part in all kinds of activities: baseball, badminton, paintball, a climbing wall, drones, video games, a cycle race, paddle tennis, volleyball, an obstacle course, and an orientation course where they discovered the presence of textiles in every sport.
The textile sector increasingly offers many exciting opportunities and job offers to students who decide to train in the industry. AITEX is committed to continuing its programme of activities to teach young people about the prospects offered by the industry, and new developments.
More than 450 high school students from 8 secondary schools in Ontinyent and Bocairent enjoyed a day full of activities and excitement, and the event ended with a draw for a mountain bike for each school.
