This year, SkillUSA Minnesota had 66 students represent our state in a variety of SkillsUSA Championship contests. 2023 was the second year NLSC was held as a live event since 2019, and many students’ first ever NLSC experience. Even with it being some students’ first time at NLSC, Minnesota students were able to bring home 12 medalists including 1 Gold medal, 7 Silver medals, and 4 Bronze medals! Along with medalist winners, Minnesota also had 03 students finish in the Top Ten of their contest, as well as 24 students receiving a Skills Point Certificate which are provided to students who meet the benchmark score set by the National Technical Committee. Congratulations to all participants!
