Formerly named VICA, SkillsUSA is a national student organization for students enrolled in career and technical education programs on the secondary and post secondary level.  The organization is supported by major contributors such as Mike Rowe Works, Lowe's, Snap-On, Harley Davidson, and 3M; to see a list of official partners, click HERE.

It enriches CTE students' career education with Workplace Skills, Personal Skills, and Technical Skills Grounded in Academics.  Additionally, SkillsUSA gives students an opportunity to win scholarships, recognition and advance their careers.

In SkillsUSA, students are given the opportunity to compete against other students enrolled in career and technical programs in both their trade areas and in professional skills like job interviews and public speaking.  First, students compete within their own school and then move on to district competition. District gold medalists go on to state competition in Hershey, PA.  Gold medalists at the state level winners go on to compete with the best-of-the-best at the national level.
