2018 State Leadership Conference & Skills Championship

Conference Headquarters: Crowne Plaza, Louisville, KY | April 11-14 2018

The 2018 SkillsUSA Kentucky State Leadership Conference & Skills Championship is almost here! I hope your regional events have been exciting and rewarding. The 2018 SkillsUSA State Officers and the Frankfort staff are working to ensure a great SkillsUSA KY State Conference. This year’s theme is Champions at Work: Preparing America’s Skilled Workforce.

By attending the State Conference, our students benefit from positive leadership activities. They have the opportunity to learn from and network with SkillsUSA business and industry partners, many of whom are looking for employees. Student participants will meet industry professionals in their fields of study and gain insights into those careers, all the while experiencing the benefits of participation in competitive events and the overall conference atmosphere.

Another important aspect of the State Conference is the SkillsUSA Kentucky Congress, the decision-making body of SkillsUSA Kentucky. Student delegates meet to discuss topics that may affect their chapters and members for years to come. Additionally, interested students will submit beforehand their applications to become SkillsUSA Kentucky State Officers, the organization’s leadership team. Students can attend the Conference in one of these roles without having won a local or regional competition. Please encourage your students to take advantage of one of these important SkillsUSA Kentucky roles!

The registration fee for Delegates or Courtesy Corps members is $40 each. The registration fee for students competing is $80 for each participant if registered by the March 23 deadline.
