SkillsUSA is the nation­al orga­ni­za­tion for stu­dents in trade, indus­tri­al, and tech­ni­cal edu­ca­tion.  It spon­sors the SkillsUSA Championships annu­al­ly to rec­og­nize the achieve­ments of career and tech­ni­cal stu­dents, and to encour­age them to strive for excel­lence and pride in their cho­sen occu­pa­tions.  The con­tests are planned by tech­ni­cal com­mit­tees com­prised of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of labor and man­age­ment and are designed to test the skills need­ed for suc­cess­ful entry-level per­for­mance in giv­en occu­pa­tion­al fields.  In addi­tion to com­pe­ti­tions focus­ing on tech­ni­cal skills, stu­dents have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to demon­strate their lead­er­ship abil­i­ties.  Leadership devel­op­ment con­tests include areas con­cen­trat­ing on pub­lic speak­ing, job inter­view, busi­ness pro­ce­dure, and professionalism.

The gold medal win­ners will advance to the National SkillsUSA Leadership and Skills Conference in Atlanta, Georgia in June 2022.
