SkillsUSA Illinois Championships
The SkillsUSA Illinois state competition recognizes career and technical education students who excel in their occupational areas, and spotlights leadership development activities that are such an integral part of the SkillsUSA program.
The philosophy of the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships is to reward students for excellence, to involve industry in directly evaluating student performance, and to keep training relevant to employers’ needs. Contests directly follow technical standards established by industry each year.
Besides showcasing students’ skills, the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships, by the very nature of competition, urges students to take pride in their work. It also provides prospective employers with an opportunity to see dedicated, motivated potential employees at work.
