State Qualifying Event:
Skilled and Technical
Real-world technical skills and creative aptitude are tested as though competitors work for an ad agency. In addition to a written test, competitors recreate a given advertisement on the computer. Competitors are judged on their accuracy, proficiency with industry standard software and ability to meet the deadline. A creative portion involves the application of creative thinking and development of a design solution.
The career competitions of the SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) as a membership benefit following their submission of membership.
