June 25-30, 2018 Louisville, Kentucky The SkillsUSA Missouri championships has been called the showcase of technical education. It recognizes career and technical education students who excel in their occupational areas, as well as leadership development activities that are such an integral part of the SkillsUSA program in the classroom. The involvement of industry in the SkillsUSA Missouri championships program is essential. Leadership, health, trade, industrial and technical experts donate their time to serve as contest judges and as technical committee members. They assume responsibility for selecting the skills that are to be judged, determining the format of the contests and establishing the standards by which contestants will be judged. Besides showcasing students’ skills, the Missouri SkillsUSA Championships, by the very nature of competition, urges students to take pride in their work. It also provides prospective employers with an opportunity to see dedicated, motivated potential employees at work. For more information, visit:  https://www.skillsusa.org/
