Students are workforce ready after SkillsUSA competition

Every year, students from FutureForward, the district's career and technical education program, participate in the SkillsUSA State Competition. 

At the state competition, SkillsUSA students hone their hands-on skills against current industry standards in more than 130 occupational areas, from 3-D Animation to Welding and nearly everything in between. At the same time, they develop the transformative career-readiness skills — teamwork, communication, professionalism, leadership and more — that fuel career and life success.

This year, FutureForward had 58 students compete at the state competition — 34 from the Washington Square campus and 24 from the Bollman campus. Our students and teachers worked so hard to prepare for this event, and it was a huge success.
