« Back to Events List

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 2015, 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.

This year, NCCER sponsored both the Carpentry and Masonry competitions. BYF and NCCER attended the competitions and watched a close race, as all competitors performed incredibly in Louisville, Kentucky.
