The SkillsUSA Ohio State Championships brings over 5000 competitors, business and industry partners, instructors, and vendors together in over 100 contests in all 16 Career Pathways to showcase Career and Technical Education in Ohio. Students compete for the title of best in Ohio in their respective career fields. This prestigious event has something for everyone.

Along with competitions students get a chance to campaign for the opportunity to be selected to be one of seven every year to hold the title of State Officer in the yearly delegate assembly and officer elections. Ohio Business and Industry display their products and offer employment opportunities for students at the SkillsUSA Ohio Techspo.

 

Students that are interested in learning more about SkillsUSA and the Championships can register to participate in the SkillsUSA Ohio Leadership Experience and Championships tour led by SkillsUSA Ohio Alumni and State Advisors.
