We had our first meeting today for all newly recommended members! We are so excited about how much interest there is in SkillsUSA this year and we can't wait to get started. If you were absent on Friday and missed the meeting make sure you come see Ms. Rubin or Mr. Leibering as soon as possible.
There will be a mandatory meeting tomorrow, February 20, in Ms. Bowen's room 2nd period. This meeting is important as we will be officially registering everyone for their contests. We will also be going over and handing out contest guidelines. The contests will be here before you know it, it's time to start practicing!
Check out the pictures from SkillsUSA Day!
This past Friday was SkillsUSA Day at EB Tech! Student officers of the state came to get students excited about SkillsUSA. They told students about the opportunities that come from being involved with SkillsUSA, not only during high school but also after. They also came to encourage us to become better leaders. Students got to meet other SkillsUSA students that they will be competing against in the spring, both from our own school schools across the state.
SkillsUSA day will be December 19! The program will last all day in the Board Office ITV room. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Unfortunately our SkillsUSA day scheduled for this Friday has been postponed. New date to be announced soon...
We'll be selling Halloween candy grams October 23-31.
Volunteers needed to assemble candy grams after school, sell during both lunches, and to sort candy grams for delivery. See an advisor or officer to sign up.
SkillsUSA day is October 24!!
SkillsUSA Day is conducted by state officers. It is a full day of intensive training, and the goal is to leave the chapter officers and advisors with a blueprint for developing a full program of work in order to expand membership and participation in their entire SkillsUSA program.
SkillsUSA members are selected through their shops. First, check out the 2014 contest list to see if there is something you would be interested in competing in. For more information on any of the contests, see one of the SkillsUSA student officers. If you find a contest that you would like to compete in, speak with your shop teacher. Each contest is limited to one or two students per school. Shop teachers will be making their SkillsUSA recommendations in early October, so be sure to speak with them soon.
