In the Wisconsin Technology and Engineering state standards, as adopted by State Superintendent Tony Evers in 2013, it says; “SkillsUSA is the student organization for middle and high school technology and engineering education programs as recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.” SkillsUSA is an intra-currilcular technology and engineering organization. The venn diagram below shows the importance of having SkillsUSA as a leadership (soft skills) development component, in addition to academics and work based learning.
