SkillsUSA studentsOn December 5, more than 100 high school students from Wisconsin showcased their knowledge in the skilled trades as part of a SkillsUSA competition at Preble High School. Events included welding, CNC machining, cabinetry, robotics, team engineering, problem solving and more.

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry representatives who work together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. The national nonprofit organization serves teachers, high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations. 

Participation in SkillsUSA is one way our schools are helping to combat the worker shortage in the trades industries. During the event, students had the opportunity to learn about various job opportunities and meet with employers. 

As part of the SkillsUSA competition, students earned points and competed for medals. Judges for the competition included representatives from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, University Technical Institute, the National Guard, KI and the Green Bay Area Public School District. Local companies also donated materials and supplies for the competition.
