SkillsUSA offers many opportunities for growth through career competitions. Students can compete at the local, district, state, national or international levels. Students must compete at the district level to advance to the state level, and then state to advance to the national contest. SkillsUSA Texas offers Leadership Development contests in all participating Training Programs. In addition to the Leadership Development competitions, students may also compete in the Skilled and Technical, Occupationally Related, and Health Occupations competitions.

For District and State level regulations and guidelines, such as registration limits, and eligibility requirements, please refer to the Texas Regulations.

The following is a list of current Leadership Development competitions that are offered in SkillsUSA Texas. Keep in mind, that some of the contests are “State Only”, meaning there is not a national level for that contest. National contest descriptions are on the national web page, www.skillsusa.org, and the “State Only” contest descriptions can be found within the Texas Regulations. For the most updated list of contests offered, please refer to the Texas Regulations
