2016 SkillsUSA RI Championships Information

The 2016 SkillsUSA RI Championships Contest Book is intended to be used with a copy of the National technical standards to help prepare your students for the competitive events. The Rules and Regulations Governing the SkillsUSA RI Championships is a guide where you will find general rules explaining eligibility, the grievance policy, single shop contests and more. I strongly encourage you to read through it.

2016 Awards Ceremony Seating

Attached is the auditorium floor plan and a seating chart key. Please use this to direct your people the the correct areas on the evening of the Awards Ceremony.

Seating on the floor is strictly for competitors and educators (not other students). It will be very tight this year at the ceremony. We have about 940 seats available for general admission and 905 seats available for competitors and educators. We cannot guarantee seating for everyone; especially if people are late. Please remind your students that we have a policy of 1-2 guests per person.

I also want to remind you that we will NOT be recognizing the CTE student showcase participants on stage this year because we have a little over 100 students registered for that event. We do not have room to accommodate all of the participants.
