Scott Tech Student Organizations Participate in District and State Competitions
Students at Scott Tech participate in career and technical student organizations within the center. Two of our organizations are coming off of their trips to district and state competitions. Following is some information from the SkillsUSA and DECA websites and competition results.
SkillsUSA is a national organization serving trade, industrial, technical, and health occupations students in public high schools, career and technical centers, and two-year colleges. SkillsUSA has more than 250,000 student and professional members annually, organized into more than 13,000 chapters in 50 states and 3 territorial associations (including Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands).
SkillsUSA is an applied method for preparing America's high performance workers in vocational-technical programs. It provides quality educational experiences for members in leadership, teamwork, citizenship, and chapter development. It builds self-confidence, work, attitudes, and communication skills, emphasizing total quality at work: high ethical standards, superior work skills, life-long education, and pride in the dignity of work. SkillsUSA also promotes understanding of the free enterprise system and involvement in community service activities. More than 1,000 trade associates and labor unions actively support SkillsUSA through financial aid, in-kind contributions, and involvement of their people in SkillsUSA activities.
Contests are held in conjunction with the Missouri SkillsUSA Leadership and Skills Conference attended by more than 2,500 students, teachers, and representatives of business, industry, education, and government. During their stay, students participate as voting delegates for their chapters, elect state officers, conduct the business of the organization, meet with business and industry representatives, and hear from officials!
