The contest was in the School of Technology CNC machining lab at Vincennes University, which hosted the regional SkillsUSA machining com- petition for high school stu- dents enrolled in machining programs in Southern Indi- ana. The SkillsUSA Champion- ships is the platform for the best career and technical students in the nation. Con- tests begin locally, then con- tinue through the state and national levels. The top five in each category advance to the State finals in Indianapo- lis on April 17 and 18, where more than 350 high school students and guests from all over Indiana will compete. SkillsUSA is a partner- ship of students, teachers and industry representa- tives working together to en- sure America has a skilled workforce and that each stu- dent excels while prepar- ing for careers in technical, skilled and service occupa- tions. The events include lo- cal, state and national com- petitions in which students demonstrate occupational and leadership skills. At the annual national-level Skill- sUSA Championships, near- ly 6,000 students compete in 99 occupational and leader- ship skill areas. SkillsUSA programs al- so help to establish indus- try standards for job skill training in the lab and class- room, and promote commu- nity service. SkillsUSA is recognized by the U.S. De- partment of Education and is cited as a "success mod- el of employer-driven youth development training pro- gram" by the U.S. Depart- ment of Labor. The Precision Machining students competed in the SkillsUSA regional competition at VU on Saturday.
