Excel in Your Competition

Involvement in SkillsUSA’s Competitive Events programs offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life necessary in families, communities, and careers. SkillsUSA has been serving students, educators and business and industry since 1965 by keeping up with both employers’ needs and education mandates and trends.

Business, industry and education partnerships thrive in curricula programs that require industry input in classroom standards.

Your parents might remember SkillsUSA as VICA–Vocational Industrial Clubs of America. VICA became SkillsUSA in 1998.

The Student Section of the National SkillsUSA website is a treasure trove of information and resources for student members including scholarships and chapter resources.
