Skills USA Competition
SkillsUSA is an organization that focuses on developing the skills of the United States’ developing workforce. One of its main goals is “to empower members to become world-class workers, leaders, and responsible American citizens.” One way that SkillsUSA accomplishes this goal is through the organization of competitions that encourage and facilitate the growth of students. These competitions reward students for excellence and involve industry in directly evaluating student performance to ensure that training is relevant to employers’ needs. These competitions begin locally and progress to a national level. Learn more about Skills USA >
