annual State Leadership and Skills Conference last week, and 616 of them came
Students competed in a variety of events based on SkillsUSA’s high school programs throughout the state – Architecture, Construction, Communication, Transportation, Culinary Arts, Personal Care Services and Public Safety. Contests are based on industry standards, and they’re designed and judged by business partners. Business and industry partners welcomed competitors into their facilities to test their skills, and created a dynamic Career Expo for attendees.
“Through SkillsUSA, students learn skills that prepare them for the future and help them discover careers they love,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “As we work to personalize education for all students, opportunities for hands-on career exploration could not be more important. I congratulate these student winners and commend every student who participated.”
