SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student excel. SkillsUSA’s mission is to help its members become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.
The regional contest is the first level of competition for students in SkillsUSA. Those who score highest at regionals are invited to compete at State Conference (in California, this takes place in Ontario in April), and those who receive top scores at State will be invited compete at the SkillsUSA National Leadership & Skills Conference (NLSC) in Louisville, KY in June.
With over 300,000 student and advisor members across the nation, SkillsUSA is one of the most widely recognized and respected organizations supporting and promoting students entering careers in skilled trades. It is of critical importance to AWFS and our member companies to see students encouraged and trained in skilled trades. Like all manufacturing segments, the wood products manufacturing industry is in need of skilled workers to replace the vast numbers of retiring baby boomers. We recognize that supporting students and education and is the future of our industry.
Although this year’s contest has ended, SkillsUSA is always seeking industry support and involvement at the local, state and national level, and it’s never too early to start planning for next year! Assistance as a volunteer or donations of tools, supplies or materials are appreciated. Contact Adam Kessler (firstname.lastname@example.org or (323) 215-0312) to explore ways to help!
