The SkillsUSA Championships are competitive events showcasing the best career and technical education students. The philosophy of the Championships is to reward students for excellence, to involve industry in directly evaluating student performance and to keep training relevant to employers’ needs.

Each school is allowed one contestant/team per event. Access to the SkillsUSA Championships Technical Standards, which contain official contest rules, is available to professional members. View the national and state contest descriptions for overviews of all contests. Contestants should check the national contest updates page for the latest updates. Any variations to national technical standards required at our regional and state conferences due to time or limited resources will be posted to state or regional contest updates pages.
