Highlights from SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference

We went on the road this week for the 2019 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. An estimated 19,000 students, teachers, education leaders, and representatives from 600 national corporations, trade associations, businesses and labor unions were on hand. As part of the conference, students competed in the SkillsUSA Championships,  the largest skill competition in the world and the single largest day of industry volunteerism in America.

More than 6,400 students competed in 103 contests — from skilled and technical science contests to leadership development contests. Of those, about 100 students from Washington were on hand to showcase their skills.

It was an exciting week, and we wanted to share a few highlights with you:
