SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled work force. It is a national organization serving high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, including health occupations.
SkillsUSA serves high school and college students enrolled in programs preparing them for technical, skilled and service careers. Students embrace our slogan “SkillsUSA: Champions at Work” by learning leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development – traits that go into shaping responsible, reliable employees who will one day become leaders in the workplace.
The program emphasizes high ethical standards, superior work skills, lifelong education and pride. SkillsUSA also promotes community service, patriotism and an understanding of the free enterprise system.
We meet twice monthly at 7:30am in the drafting room. SkillsUSA Nebraska has yearly state competitions that allow students to show-case their skills and an opportunity to advance to national competitions and potentially win scholarships. Students have the opportunity to network with professionals in the world of work. All PLHS students are welcome.
