The SkillsUSA RI Championships are competitive events that showcase the best career and technical education students in the state. The philosophy of the Championships is to rewards students for excellence, to involve industry in directly evaluating student performance, and to keep training relevant to employers needs.
SkillsUSA RI state competitions begin in the classroom. Teachers design in-house contests based on technical standards designed by industry members and provided by the SkillsUSA RI leadership team.
Depending on the contest, the top 1-3 students from each classroom will move on to compete at the state level. The state gold medalist for each competition moves on to represent SkillsUSA RI at the National Skills and Leadership Conference.
