SkillsUSA is the organization for students in technical, skilled and service career, including health careers. Formerly known at Vocational Industrial Clubs of America. Being a SkillsUSA member is all about being a champion. This means much more than winning a contest - it's the attribute of dedication to personal and professional excellence.
Here at the State Fair, we work with SkillsUSA to showcase these students and their new entry level skills. Contests range from fifteen minutes to three hours covering a variety of trades from cosmetology and culinary to welding and carpentry. Business and industry groups sponsor the judges, supplies, and some prizes.
We will be posting the competition guide soon, but all competition registration and specific information can be found at http://www.skillsusava.org
