Get SkillsUSA at
Your School

Any student enrolled in a school which has an active SkillsUSA chapter is eligible to become a member. You do not have to enrolled in a career/technology class to become a member. You simply have to affiliate yourself with the local chapter. If your school does not have an active chapter, contact a teacher or administrator about the possibility of forming one. Advisors, remember any student in your school is eligible for membership even if they are not enrolled in a career/technology program. They would be eligible to participate in any leadership contest, but would have to be in a career/technology program to be eligible for the skills competitions.
