Champions at Work!

SkillsUSA’s National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC) was held June 20-24, 2022, in Atlanta, Georgia with more than 13,500 total attendees made up of career and technical education students, educators, and business and industry partners. NLSC also included a SkillsUSA TECHSPO with over 159 exhibitors from industry and education making it the largest in the nation.

During NLSC 5,055 students from all 50 states and US territories were able to showcase their career and technical skills in the SkillsUSA Championships featuring 108 different trade, technical, and leadership career competition events. Competitors earned the right to represent their state by placing first in state level contests that set the stage for NLSC.

NLSC will continue to be held in Atlanta, GA for the next few years, and is scheduled for June 19-23, 2023. Additional information on NLSC can be found on the SkillsUSA website.

This year, SkillUSA Minnesota had 63 students represent our state in a variety of SkillsUSA Championship contests. 2022 was the first 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 18 medalists including 9 Gold medals, 5 Silver medals, and 4 Bronze medals! Along with medalist winners, Minnesota also had 33 students finish in the Top Ten of their contest. Congratulations to all participants!
