Essential Competition Clothing: Show Your Skills in Style

SkillsUSA Releases Prototypes of New Competition Attire for the SkillsUSA Championships

As the number one workforce development organization for students, SkillsUSA works tirelessly to ensure our national competitive events are cutting edge. This includes our work attire. We want SkillsUSA students to be proud to wear their SkillsUSA Championships uniforms on competition day — and to find them attractive, functional and comfortable enough to wear every day.

As part of our uniform initiative, SkillsUSA is introducing new competition uniforms in both men’s and women’s cuts for these SkillsUSA Championships events:

  • Class C – Manufacturing/Construction
  • Class D – Competition Specific
  • Class I – Welding

The new competition attire will be available for purchase in spring 2025 and will be allowable for the 2025 SkillsUSA Championships. These new uniforms will be required for those competing at the 2026 National Leadership & Skills Conference.
