the SkillsUSA Competition at

Dave at Williamson


The SkillsUSA Championships is the showcase for the best career and technical students in the nation. Contests begin locally and continue through the state and national levels. Last year there were more than 5,700 contestants in 94 separate events. The philosophy of the Championships is to reward students for excellence, to involve industry in directly evaluating student performance, and to keep training relevant to employers’ needs.

Capenters copyAt the Williamson School competition this year, Brandon Gain (1W4) came in first in masonry, and Bill Davis (1W5) came in first in carpentry. Both students will compete in the SkillsUSA district competitions this winter. All first-place winners at districts go to state competitions in Hershey in April and state first-place winners go to nationals in Kansas City in June. Dave Cericola, the General Manager of Tague Lumber’s Media location, stopped by to watch the carpenters during the competition.

Tague Lumber wishes all the students the best of luck as they advance to the next stage of the competition!
