Fairfax, Virginia - SkillsUSA, a national organization serving educators and students as they prepare to enter technical occupations, recently hosted the 52nd annual SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference Championship in Louisville, Kentucky. Not only were students able to show their talent to potential employers, but winners were honored with thousands of dollars in prizes — not to mention the hard-earned title of SkillsUSA National Champion.
“Because of their partnership, SGIA industry development initiatives dovetail nicely with the mission of the SkillsUSA organization in providing a skilled workforce. By investing resources in the Skills competitions, we are cultivating skilled workers for future workforce needs,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services. “Leading the Screen Printing Technology and Graphic Imaging — Sublimation competitions assures that competition standards align with the current industry.”
“I was pleasantly surprised to see these students trying to do this, and really caring. They had a drive that you normally don’t see in most people their age,” said Pierre Jamnicky of Blue Moon Promotional, Inc. and volunteer competition judge. “Just about any one of them would be at the top of the list when it was time to hire.”
