More than 200 area middle and high school students compete at the event in a variety of "hands-on and real-world" trade and technical competitions, including:

  • Automotive service technology
  • Carpentry
  • Plumbing
  • 3D printing and design
  • Related technical math
  • Team engineering
  • Welding
  • Woodworking
  • Job interviews
  • and much more

Students from MPS Bradley Tech High School and Barack Obama CTE, Germantown High School, New Berlin West High School, J.I. Case High School, Slinger High School and Union Grove High School will take part in the competition.

Professionals from area companies like Caterpillar, Insinkerator and Graydient Creative, as well as Milwaukee Area Technical College, serve as judges for the competition, which gives students a chance to put their STEM skills to use and to meet working professionals in these trade and technical fields.

The national SkillsUSA organization – of which there is a Wisconsin chapter – promotes career and STEM education, as well as employability skills, via educational programs, meets like the one being held this week in Milwaukee.
