The SkillsUSA California Regional Championships is a series of career competition events showcasing students from six regions in career and technical education. These local-level contests progress to the state and national stages. Regional events serve as a qualifying requirement for the state conference. Gold and Silver recipients in each region will advance to SLSC from each contest. Additional qualifiers will be advanced as space allows.
Thanks to an investment from business and industry partners, the events take place in a hybrid format to ensure student participation in all regions has consistent and equitable assessment of their skills. In 2023, the Regional Championships attracted nearly 7,000 contestants participating in 118 different events. Nearly 200 judges and contest organizers contribute their expertise to make this national event possible.
The fundamental principles of the Championships are to recognize and reward students for their outstanding performance, to actively involve industry professionals in assessing student achievements, and to ensure that the training provided aligns with the needs of employers, making it highly relevant.
