SkillsUSA returns to Kansas City June 23-27, 2014 for the 50th annual National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC), a showcase of career and technical education students.

Champions at Work

More than 15,000 people - including students, teachers and business partners - are expected to participate in the week-long event.

The SkillsUSA Championships will be held on Wednesday June 25 and Thursday, June 26 in H. Roe Bartle Hall and Municipal Auditorium of the Kansas City Convention Center. More than 6,000 outstanding career and technical education students - all state contest winners - will compete hands-on in 99 different trade, technical and leadership fields.

Students work against the clock and each other, proving their expertise in occupations like electronics, computer-aided drafting, precision machining, medical assisting and culinary arts.

Contests are run with the help of industry, trade associations, and labor organizations, and test competencies are set by industry.

Leadership contestants will demonstrate skills including extemporaneous speaking and conducting meetings by parliamentary procedure. The competitions will be open to the public and free of charge.
