Region Championships

Region Championships allow student members an opportunity to showcase their professional skill set and compete against other schools in their region.

The top three winners from each career competition advance to SkillsUSA Georgia’s State Leadership & Skills Conference. In addition, all region contests will have an optional Wild Card testing component. The Wild Card exam is a SkillsUSA knowledge test (similar to the Professional Development test). The test scores will be used to fill slots that didn't fill due to lack of participation in other regions. In other words, taking this test could be your ticket to SLSC!

Who is eligible to compete at Region Championships:

  • All registered SkillsUSA members are eligible to register for Region Championships.

How Do I Register for Region Championships:

  • Advisors will register their students and themselves through the SkillsUSA Georgia Register site.

  • All students and advisors must be registered SkillsUSA members in order to register for Region Championships.

  • No Late registration is allowed.

Chapter Excellence Program

Have you heard about the Chapter Excellence Program (CEP)?

The Chapter Excellence Program is the single best way to build a successful SkillsUSA chapter! If you are unsure of how to get started or would appreciate direction regarding CEP, you can schedule a one-on-one coaching session with CEP and PoW Coach, Kelli Engelbrecht. With Kelli, you will learn how to integrate the SkillsUSA Framework, articulate your SMART goals, and select and evaluate your Essential Elements within your CEP application.

You can request a coaching session here.
