New Caney High School Students Compete at SkillsUSA
Congratulations to the New Caney High School students that competed recently at the SkillsUSA Competition!!
According to the SkillsUSA website, The SkillsUSA Championships brings together industry and labor representatives, educators, and the public to watch students compete in leadership and hands-on skill events for a full day. The SkillsUSA Championships begin at the local level with contests in classrooms nationwide. Winners advance through district and state competition, and the best of the best make it to the national event. Students benefit no matter how they place in their contests. They test their skills, frequently make job contacts, and have a chance for recognition. District, state, and national winners receive gold, silver, and bronze medallions, scholarships, tools, and other awards. The national SkillsUSA Championships event occupies floor space equivalent to 16 football fields of space, with nearly 1,500 judges and with 6,000 competitors in 100 different events. Business and Industry contribute more than $36 million in equipment, supplies, and personnel to support the SkillsUSA Championships, which is considered the largest single-day commitment of corporate volunteerism in America. Every other year, a select few are chosen to compete on an international level in the WorldSkills Competition and yes, Texas has had international competitors.
New Caney High School students competed in various events including CPR/First Aid, Medical Terminology, Dental Assisting, and Cosmetology. Students competing in these events brought home numerous awards making our community proud!
A few students are advancing to the State Competitions and we wish them all the best! You got this! #ExpectExcellenceNCHS
