State Qualifying Event:
Skilled and Technical
This competition tests technical skills and creative aptitude as though competitors worked for an ad agency. In addition to a written test, competitors will recreate a provided advertisement on the computer. Competitors are judged on their accuracy, proficiency with industry software, and ability to meet a deadline. Competitors also compete in a creative portion of the competition. The creative portion involves the application of creative thinking and a design challenge. Layout, drawing, and illustration skills are used, as well as the ability to create vibrant, effective designs using the computer.
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.
