Thread: Skills USA

Are any of you guys or gals involved or have any cadets or children of your own involved in Skills USA?
For those of you that dont know what it is, this is quoted off of their website.
"SkillsUSA is a national nonprofit organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, including health occupations. It was formerly known as VICA (Vocational Industrial Clubs of America)."
As i understand it, they just began a fire service competition this year and we just finished our local competition this morning. It seems like a really neat program to help young people get interested in the many different jobs out there.
