Educated and Skilled to Lead America Video Competition Reminder

October 29th, 2013

“Educated and Skilled to Lead America” is SkillsUSA’s theme this year and the students’ challenge will be to create a video that showcases how members are becoming educated. The video could show what their classroom or lab looks like, what they are learning, and their specific skills and how they show them off. This is their opportunity to tell their story.

Only currently registered SkillsUSA high school and college/postsecondary student members can enter and membership will be verified for each entry. The work can be done by an individual, a team or an entire class.

There is no limit on the number of students who can work on a video. The video must be entered under one chapter name, and there will be only one prize awarded for the winning video. For additional questions or information, email Kelly Horton: khorton@skillsusa.org. Complete contest details can be found at: www.skillsusa.org/compete/edskillvideo.shtml. The deadline for entries is November 15, 2013.
