SkillsUSA is a national organization for students enrolled in trade and industrial, technical, and health education classes. The goal of SkillsUSA is to help students with interests in the areas above to become happy, mature and productive citizens. The local club is a group of students who work cooperatively to develop leadership abilities through worthwhile educational, vocational, civic, recreational, and social activities. Students have the opportunity to elect or run for local and state offices. The annual Regional and State Skill Olympics offers competitive events in skill and leadership areas to students. Those fortunate enough to win selected contests at the State level have the option to represent the State of Minnesota at the United States Skills Olympics.
