Local students gear up for competition in February

More than 400 of students at the Scott Regional Technology Center in Monett who are active in SkillsUSA participated in the Local Leadership contest day activities.

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. The SkillsUSA mission is to empower its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.

According to a chapter spokesperson, "At Scott Regional Technology Center we work with all of our students to become leaders, as 100 percent of our eligible students are members of SkillsUSA. Not only do students work to improve on skills in their field, but they also work to develop leadership skills through various events hosted at our school and throughout the state."

In February, select students will participate in the Southwest District SkillsUSA Skilled and Leadership Contests.
