Students compete in trade and leadership contests

More than 800 students from 22 technical schools and two colleges competed in trade and leadership contests at the 2013 SkillsUSA Maine State Championships in March at the United Technologies Center and Eastern Maine Community College in Bangor. Gold medalists from this event will have the opportunity to represent the State of Maine at the national championships in Kansas City.

SkillsUSA Maine is a state-level competition for high school and college students enrolled in trade, technical and skilled service instructional programs including allied health occupations. SkillsUSA Maine believes this is the single greatest event of industry and education volunteerism in the state every year. The rigor of the competition and students’ dedication to advisors makes this event a true representation of the best skilled workers from technical high schools and community colleges in Maine.
