State Qualifying Events

SkillsUSA Illinois Championships


Every winter hundreds of SkillsUSA Illinois students partake in the annual State Qualifying Events (SQE). This is their gateway to many of the competitions at the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships during the State Leadership & Skills Conference. 

SkillsUSA Illinois Championships

The SkillsUSA Illinois Championships 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.

It is the goal of SkillsUSA Illinois to run all contests at maximum numbers. Therefore, after you have received the results of the State Qualifying Exams, please notify Chris Anderson (contact information below) as soon as possible, if any of your students that have qualified for a contest, will not be competing in that contest, so that he may contact the next contestant who qualifies to compete.
