    Due to the lock down all competitions at the State and National level were cancelled for 2020. We are saddened for the Automotive and Construction students who missed out on this opportunity but are proud that our organization did what was best at the time for the health and well being of everyone. 

    The calander will be changed for 2020-21 as soon as we recieve dates next school year but are usually around the same time so the previous years calander should provide a good idea of when things will happen this year.

    SkillsUSA- is a national nonprofit student organization serving 300,000 students enrolled in career and technical training programs at public high schools and colleges.

    SkillsUSA-Mississippi is the vocational student organization that is a part of National Skills USA. Students enrolled in a trade, technical, industry, or health related programs may become members of this organization. The State association has over 2,800 high school and community college members enrolled.  Skills USA is taught in trade, technical, industry, and health related programs as an integral part of the programs and it is strongly recommended that all students in these programs become active members of their local chapters.

    SkillsUSA-Mississippi high school members participate in leadership and skills contests at the District level and advance to State Championship. The first place winners from the State Championship will represent Mississippi at the National Leadership and Skills Conference in Louisville, Kentucky each year in June.
