Models of Excellence
The Models of Excellence program recognizes the exceptional integration of personal, workplace and technical skills into SkillsUSA chapter activities. This is the highest honor bestowed on chapters by SkillsUSA. Two SkillsUSA Georgia chapters, Forsyth Central High School and Apalachee High School were chosen as MOE chapters in technical skills. They were then evaluated by a panel of judges based on their goals, plan of action, results, evaluation and SkillsUSA Framework integration. Forsyth County High School was selected as the top SkillsUSA Models of Excellence chapter in the nation for technical skills! Please help us congratulate both chapters for their incredible achievement!
Frequently asked questions
Will the 2021 National Leadership and Skills Conference be held in- person as originally scheduled? If not, what format will it take?
Why was the decision made to hold a virtual conference?
In a survey conducted in October, 23 state associations revealed that imposed travel restrictions in their states would prevent them from attending the national conference. With the increase of COVID cases nationwide, more states have since been added to that list.
Numerous additional states have redirected travel funds to other needed budget shortfalls during this pandemic. This redirection of funds also directly affects the ability for states to travel, even where travel restrictions are not in place.
Is this going to be just another Zoom conference?
No, this event will NOT be just another Zoom conference. (We’ve all had our fill of those.) We will be working with a company (as yet unnamed) specializing in virtual events to create a unique, exciting, user-friendly and option-rich environment for all our members. In fact, the virtual format we’re working on may provide even MORE opportunities to make connections with future employers, mentors and friends. This will be an EVENT, an event members, partners and more will want to be a part of and will be proud to have participated in. More information will be coming soon.
