After weeks of planning, preparation, and organization, IMPACT has officially launched a SkillsUSA chapter at Indio High School!
SkillsUSA is a national student leadership organization that seeks to build technical and leadership skills in a wide variety of vocational and leadership areas. Students in SkillsUSA have the opportunity to compete in contests at the Regional, State, and National Level.
IHS IMPACT students will be competing in 5 Skill competitions and 5 Leadership competitions over the 2016-2017 season. IMPACT SkillsUSA has also joined forces with the IHS Engineering and Robotics CTE pathway to branch out into several STEM contest areas.
All SkillsUSA students will gain valuable leadership and professional development experience. Regional competitions will take place in January, with students who earn Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals earning the right to advance to the State Conference in April. Any students who earn a Gold medal in the State Conference will represent California at the National Conference in Louisville, Kentucky next June.
