Utah Students Win Medals at National Skills Competition
Congratulations to the 38 Utah SkillsUSA student members who won medals last week at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference! Over 5,900 students competed in 98 hands-on skills and leadership competitions. From architectural drafting to plumbing to Web design Utah students showed off their skills which resulted in gold, silver, or bronze medals.
Dave Milliken, National SkillsUSA Board Member and Skilled and Technical Sciences Education specialist at the Utah State Office of Education said this about the competition. “Our postsecondary and secondary students represented the State of Utah very well at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC) held in Kansas City, June 24- 28. Utah students walked away with 18 gold, 10 silver, and 9 bronze medals in 24 different contests. This was good enough for 7th place nationally in the medal count. Our students did a great job and performed to the highest caliber.”
