One of our very own former SkillsUSA GAPS State Officers has been extremely busy since the NLSC held in Atlanta in June. Former SkillsUSA GAP State President Emily Pinto has been traveling to attend training opportunities as our National SkillsUSA Postsecondary Vice President. Most recently Emily attended The Washington Leadership Training Institute where she and her fellow National Officers facilitated the event. Approximately 450 state officers from the secondary and postsecondary levels attended this event to enhance their leadership skills. Ms. Pinto was honored to represent all SkillsUSA members at Arlington National Cemetary by laying the wreath at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Emily underwent a rigorous process, including: earning the SkillsUSA Framework Certification, the CTE Knowledge Certification, the Career Essentials Credential (about a 30 hour course), passing a program written exam, participating in an interview by national education and industry leaders, and acquiring a majority of national delegate votes.

"It was quite a long process but it was so worth it to be involved in this organization, which is making such a big difference locally by also nationally in the long run for our future workforce," Pinto said.

Get SkillsUSA at
Your School

Any student enrolled in a school which has an active SkillsUSA chapter is eligible to become a member. You do not have to enrolled in a career/technology class to become a member. You simply have to affiliate yourself with the local chapter. If your school does not have an active chapter, contact a teacher or administrator about the possibility of forming one. Advisors, remember any student in your school is eligible for membership even if they are not enrolled in a career/technology program. They would be eligible to participate in any leadership contest, but would have to be in a career/technology program to be eligible for the skills competitions.



The SkillsUSA Championships is the showcase for the best career and technical students in the nation. Contests begin locally and continue through the state and national levels.

This is a multi-million dollar event that occupies a space equivalent to 16 football fields. In 2013, there were nearly 6,000 contestants in 98 separate events. Nearly 1,500 judges and contest organizers from labor and management make the national event possible.

The philosophy of the Championships is to reward students for excellence, to involve industry in directly evaluating student performance and to keep training relevant to employers’ needs.
