Wisconsin SkillsUSA

After a two-year hiatus because of COVID-19, the 49th annual SkillsUSA Wisconsin State Leadership and Skills Conference will take place in 2022.

While the majority of the competitions will be held April 6 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, the Culinary Arts competition will be held March 11 at Northcentral Technical College, 1000 W. Campus Drive in Wausau.

Students from Colby High School, Spooner High School and Webster High School will participate in the competition, with all of them demonstrating their culinary skills while competing for a chance to represent Wisconsin at the National SkillsUSA Championships, June 20-24 in Atlanta, Georgia.

SkillsUSA Wisconsin is a partnership of students, teachers and industry representatives working together to ensure America has the skilled work force needed to stay competitive. The diverse talent pipeline covers 130 trades, technical, and skilled service occupations, the majority science-, technology-, engineering-, and mathematics-, or STEM-related.
