SkillsUSA is a national organization for trade, industrial, and technical education students. It sponsors the SkillsUSA Championships each year to recognize the achievements of career and technical students and provide them with encouragement to strive for excellence and pride in the occupations they chose.

Students compete based on their technical skills but also have an opportunity to demonstrate their leadership abilities through the aspect of the competition that involves public speaking, job interviews, business procedures, and professionalism.
