The 2018 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference is scheduled for June 25-29 in Louisville, KY.

SkillsUSA, an industry partner of SGIA, is a national organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in technical, skilled and service occupations. It is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. Its annual competition typically attracts more than 6,000 outstanding career and technical education students –– all state contest winners –– to 100 distinct, hands-on trade, technical and leadership competitions.

SGIA and many of our wonderful industry partners (listed below) support the Screen Printing and Graphic Imaging-Sublimation competitions at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference annually. These competitions cultivate student's skills so they are prepared to enter our industry. This would not be possible without the continued help from our industry partners.

Thank you to all who have supported SkillsUSA and donated prizes for the winning students and schools!
