The philosophy of the Championships is to reward students for excellence to involve industry in directly evaluating student performance and to keep training relevant to employers’ needs. The state championships showcase the best career and technical students in Nebraska. First-place winners compete in the SkillsUSA national championships in June. More than 1500 people including students, teachers, and business partners are expected to participate in the event. Students work against the clock and each other, proving their expertise in over 100 contests in areas of:
Architecture & Construction, Arts, Audio/Video Technology, Business Management & Administration, Education, Health Science, Public Safety, Hospitality & Tourism, Leadership, Manufacturing, Science, Technology, Engineering & Math, Information Technology, Transportation & more!

Students may compete in ONLY one contest from Category 1 and one contest from Category 2! Click Here for breakdown. Students can compete in as many Category 3 contests as they desire because they do not conflict with other contests. Many of the Category 3 contests will take place at the same time and Mousetrap Vehicles will require the student member to operate it during the competition.
SO – means it is a “State Only” contest. Pay attention to SO contests that specify they are open only to 9th and 10th graders.
Advisors who are paid professional SkillsUSA members will gain online access to the national technical standards through the national website. The 2021-2022 SkillsUSA Championships Technical Standards are the official competition guides for the SkillsUSA Championships and is newly revised. It contains rules for all national events, including an overview, lists of technical skills and knowledge required, clothing requirements, eligibility, and equipment lists. It also lists the embedded academic skills in math, English and science. Rules for state and local events may vary from the national guidelines, but most competitive events are modeled after the national technical standards.
Any additional information from our State Contest Coordinators will be listed on our Contest Updates page, Click Here. We will continually update contest information on the Updates page. This is the main way of communicating the tools/equipment lists and what advisors and students should know before the conference.
Here are the State-Only Contests Standards. If the State-Only contest has national technical standards, refer to those technical standards. Scoring may vary between national contest and the state-only contest.
