57th State Leadership & Skills Conference

April 4-7, 2024 - Ontario Convention Center


Preparing for leadership in the world of work.

The SkillsUSA Championships in California is a premier event showcasing the state's most highly skilled career and technical education students. As one of the largest hands-on workforce development events statewide, it takes place each April alongside the SkillsUSA State Leadership & Skills Conference. With over 3,000 state champions competing in 120 skilled and leadership competitions, this awe-inspiring event is a testament to the excellence and relevance of classroom training to employers' needs. The championships are a crucial part of a year-long process that begins at local chapters progressing through district and regional levels. Winners not only receive gold, silver, or bronze medals but also have the opportunity to advance to the national conference in June and earn scholarships, tools, and job offers, showcasing the bright future of skilled trades in California.
