So sorry for the delay everyone. I am going to answer by redirecting you to a website. This website explains the benefits to you as a student for becoming a member. http://skillsusa.org/join/studentben.shtml

I have attached some photos that I took at the National Competition that I attended this summer. The pictures show you a portion of all the competions that are held there for our discipline. Let me know if you have any questions.

National Competition
Industry recognition and medallions for winners will make this an exciting event that provides a career-enhancing opportunity for each participant. The contest will be planned and judged to industry standards for an entry-level worker in the field.

Events will be held on June 22-24, 2009 in Kansas City, Mo. There will be opportunities to attend a general session with more than 12,000 participants at Kemper Arena, a hands-on competitive event, an awards ceremony, and an optional tour of the SkillsUSA Championships.

This is a demonstration event that allows students to compete at a national, $30 million event that has been hosted by business and industry for the benefit of technical students since 1967. The SkillsUSA conference currently offers more than 91 national competitions with more than 5,000 competitors annually at the national level.

Looks fun. :) I was a member in high school but I was ill and unable to compete at the competition, yet even then it still looks great on a resume. This is definitely something to think about guys. If you haven't already, at least check out the link mmaize provided. SkillsUSA can open up doors for employment opportunities that you never would have had access to before.

Good points narada. There is over 1 million companies that support Skills USA


I just found out some more dates for competition. The state competition is held at DEMACC on April 30th and May 1st. If you win 1st or 2nd place you will automatically be eligible to compete at the national level. At that point the school will pay for your dues, hotel, and other expenses. The national competition is held in Kansas City, MO on June 22-24. I just received a few CDs that will give me more information about each competition. The CD's will tell us all the specs for competition as well as whether the competition is individual or in a group/partner setting.

Please come see me for more detail. If you are interested in becoming a member I will set you up online and do all the paper work for you. The deadline for membership is March 1st 2009 but I woulld like to shoot for the end of the year as our deadline.
