This is a team competition that requires three students from each school to use their welding and fabrication skills to build a designed project from the given material. The students are also required to be proficient in using the common tools of a workshop. A theme-based project is constructed by the students based on the prints drawn by each team.
The SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA National Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) following membership registration.
