Skills USA is a national student organization that instills the development of employability, participatory, and leadership skills to complement the occupational skills developed by students in technical education classrooms or work-based learning sites. Some of the purposes of the skills competitions are to unite a common bond in students, develop leadership abilities, instill work ethic, help students attain a purposeful life, create enthusiasm for learning, and promote a high standard in trade ethics, workmanship, scholarship, and safety.
