Skills USA

SkillsUSA heads to Atlanta, Ga. for the annual National Leadership & Skills Conference (NLSC), a showcase of career and technical education students.

The SkillsUSA Championships are held on Wednesday and Thursday. In 2022, nearly 5,200 outstanding career and technical education students –– all state contest winners –– competed hands-on in 108 different trade, technical and leadership career competitions. We expect even more competitors in 2023. Competitors work against the clock and each other, proving their expertise in occupations such as electronics, computer-aided drafting, precision machining, medical assisting and culinary arts. Contests are run with the help of industry, trade associations and labor organizations, and test competencies are set by industry. Leadership contestants will demonstrate skills including extemporaneous speaking and conducting meetings by parliamentary procedure.

The week caps off with the Awards Ceremony, which takes place on Friday evening.
