Our 12 National SkillsUSA Students earned Gold and Silver medals at the SkillsUSA Illinois State Competition this spring. ICC sent 85 students to the state competition with 22 earning medals and another 32 placing in the top 10 of their competition.
SkillsUSA students make up the top 2% of all students in the nation. This year there were 351,383 registered SkillsUSA student members nationwide with a little over 6,000 (less than 2%) making it to the National Conference. Of those students who make it to Nationals, less than 5% make it to the medal stand.
