SkillsUSA competitions showcase CTE students, involve industry professionals in evaluating student performance and help to train students for the workforce. The philosophy of the competition is to reward students for excellence, to involve industry in directly evaluating student performance and to train students for employer needs and future career goals.

Students who earn a gold, silver or bronze medal will represent their respective CTE program at the SkillsUSA Maryland State Leadership and Skills Conference in April in Anne Arundel County.
