Top Great Oaks Career Campuses students will have the chance to compete against other top students in Ohio after winning medals in local and regional SkillsUSA competition.
The SkillsUSA competition gives students in career-technical high school programs the chance to test their skills and be judged by professionals in their field.
The events are as varied as the career-technical programs that the students are in. Automotive students show their knowledge of engines and auto bodies. Precision Machining students demonstrate their skills, while Cosmetology students paint elaborate fingernail designs and style hair. In one room, teams of Law Enforcement students may gather evidence from parked cars. Other students make presentations that demonstrate their public speaking and professional skills.
