2021 NJ SkillsUSA Championships



NJ SkillsUSA Championships is the state-level competition for high school and

post-secondary students who are enrolled in career and technical education

training programs within the state. 


Competitors will compete in over 90 hands-on skill and

leadership contests this Spring via in-person and virtual contests.


1st place winners will qualify to represent the state of New Jersey at the National SkillsUSA Leadership and Skills Conference during the month of June 2021. 


The contest standards for the national events are available with a paid professional SkillsUSA membership.   Details available at www.skillsusa.org
