Holding the SkillsUSA Championships always requires a huge, coordinated effort from all our SkillsUSA stakeholders and industry partners, but that challenge was never greater than it was in 2021.
Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, SkillsUSA members and supporters from across the country worked to find new ways to hold their competitive events, leading to a triumphant 2021 SkillsUSA Championships that featured nearly 3,700 competitors in 107 skilled and leadership competitions.
In this video, many of our 2021 national medalists – representing a wide variety of skilled trade areas – say thank you to all the supporters and industry partners who helped make their inspiring accomplishments possible.
The one-year countdown to competition has begun as SkillsUSA initiates the process to field a team of talented young skilled trades experts to represent the United States at the 2024 WorldSkills Competition to be held Sept. 10-15 in Lyon, France.
SkillsUSA has once again teamed up with Tractor Supply Company (TSC), Tractor Supply Company Foundation and Carhartt for their annual “Support the Trades” campaign designed to raise awareness of the skilled trades while helping SkillsUSA close the skilled trades gap. Carhartt and TSC have an expanded this year’s “Support the Trades” line of shirts and hats from Carhartt to benefit SkillsUSA.
