Sparking a Champion

In Nevada, Desert Oasis High School students had a vision of creating an impactful event that would benefit both the community and the school. They decided to plan a job fair in which students could experience the professional world.

After rigorous planning by SkillsUSA members, the first event took place in January. With 33 vendors from local workforce and 2,060 students, the event was a major success. News stations decided to pick up the story and share the hard work students had put into planning the job fair, which sparked a huge change in the community of Enterprise.
