SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference was held in Louisville, Kentucky June 19-23, 2017. SkillsUSA provides nearly 100 different competitions for students to excel in technical, leadership and occupational competitions. Washington had 160 advisors, contestants and parents registered for the conference. 103 students competed in 53 technical contests and 15 leadership contests. Seven of our competitors brought home medals and 31 earned skill point certificates. Skill Point Certificates are earned based on scores set by industry. You can win a medal and still not earn a certificate so it’s definitely an achievement! Congratulations to all our competitors, it was an achievement just to compete at NLSC 2017!
