Skills USA

Advisors: Mr. Mamerow, Mr. Premo, Mr. McLaughlin

This organization brings all of the Applied Engineering Department together to allow students the opportunity to interact, learn leadership skills, and compete in various contests. This organization is very similar to FFA, FBLA, DECA, and FCCLA, in which students compete in contests related to their departments. SkillsUSA has over 80 different contests available to students. To name a few; Welding, Construction, Drafting, Architectural Drafting, Photography, Screen Printing, Advertising Design, Small Engines, Precision Machining, Team Engineering, Job Interview and so on… This organization will meet monthly for meetings, but individuals may meet more often with advisors to prepare for competitions or learn more about specific skills. Students may participate in a district, regional, and state competition. If students place 1st at state, they may go to nationals.
