2018 State Contests



         The Delaware SkillsUSA State Contests are being planned at sites throughout the state for February 12-23, 2018. We are planning for students, advisors, and judges that represent business and industry from throughout the state to participate in nearly 65 state contests. More than $875,000 in student scholarships and prizes are anticipated from partners such as: Automotive Training Center, Burmax Company Inc., Delaware Technical Community College, G & E Welding Supply, Universal Technical Institute, IBEW Local 313, Keen Gas Company, Lincoln Electric, Lowe’s, Miller Electric Manufacturing Company, Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, and more. The top medalist in each individual contest will be recognized for their outstanding achievement and they may earn the honor of representing the state of Delaware at the National SkillsUSA conference to be held in Louisville, Kentucky.

         Delaware SkillsUSA is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) that recognizes the importance of students, teachers, and industry partners working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce.
