2019 SkillsUSA State Leadership & Technical Contests



The Delaware SkillsUSA State Contests are being planned at sites throughout the state in the month of February. 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 in 2019 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. SkillsUSA incorporates curricular and co-curricular experiences to emphasize the importance of knowledge, leadership, skill development, and teamwork.
