The "SkillsUSA Advisor of the Year Award" honors SkillsUSA’s most dedicated career and technical education instructors. This program recognizes professional members who actualize the organization’s mission of empowering students to become world-class workers, leaders, and responsible American citizens.


A SkillsUSA chapter is only successful with the support of an Advisor who has dedicated themselves to career and technical education by intentionally integrating the SkillsUSA Framework and ensuring students can articulate the skills they have developed.
