State Qualifying Events

SkillsUSA Illinois Championships

Every winter hundreds of SkillsUSA Illinois members partake in the annual State Qualifying Events (SQE). These are regional career competitions and serve as the gateway to compete in SkillsUSA Illinois Championships during the annual State Leadership & Skills Conference. Chapters are encouraged to host local career competitions before advancing members to the State Qualifying Events process.

State Qualifying Events

SkillsUSA Illinois is ready to provide an opportunity to our members to showcase their readiness though the career competitions of the State Championships at the State Leadership & Skills Conference 2022. The event is set to be hosted in-person at a new location in Peoria, IL. This year, members will qualify for the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships through State Qualifying Events. These will include exams, that will be delivered online and proctored locally, as well as hands-on skill events for some competitions to be completed locally. All competitors must be members of SkillsUSA, by the SQE registration deadline. Due to COVID-19 restrictions at local community colleges, regional State Qualifying Conferences will not be offered this year. SkillsUSA Illinois is currently planning for these opportunities to return in 2022.
