Students compete at SkillsUSA championships

Local students competed at the 2018 SkillsUSA Championships, held in June in Louisville, Kentucky. Students were invited to the event to demonstrate technical skills, workplace skills and personal skills in 102 hands-on occupational and leadership competitions. Industry leaders from 600 businesses, corporations, trade associations and unions planned and evaluated contestants against their standards for entry-level workers. Gold, silver and bronze medals were presented to students, with many winners also receiving industry prizes, tools of their trade and scholarships. Skill Point Certificates were awarded to students who met a predetermined threshold score in their competition, as defined by industry. The Skill Point Certificate is a component of SkillsUSA's assessment program for career and technical education.
