SkillsUSA Amazing Race
On Wednesday, June 25, 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., SkillsUSA's Amazing Race will return to TECHSPO!

This program is similar to the TV show where participants are challenged to perform various tasks and move quickly through the TECHSPO territory in order to learn more about exhibitors and win prizes. In addition, SkillsUSA's Amazing Race provides interactive fun for students and adults. The "passport" will be distributed through the state delegation conference materials included at the registration appointment at the beginning of the week.

Participants will be challenged to find different SkillsUSA products in exhibit booths throughout the show in designated TECHSPO booths. Once at the correct booth, participants must either perform a task or duty in order to qualify for a stamp on their passport card. There are two Roadblocks included in the race. Each roadblock will delay the participant and require a bit more effort to earn the stamp. After completing pit stops 1-11 (out of 12), the participant must report to the 12th and final destination and turn in the card at the final booth.

The race will conclude at the SkillsUSA Alumni booth where membership will be encouraged. Prizes will be distributed at the alumni booth to participants who complete the race. There is a limited quantity of prizes, so it will be important to complete the race in a timely manner. However, there will be a drawing for a prize which will be announced at the award ceremony. All participants in SkillsUSA's Amazing have a chance to win! Wednesday, June 25, various TECHSPO locations
