Regional Competitions

2021 SkillsUSA Wisconsin Virtual Regional Opening Ceremonies

  

SkillsUSA Wisconsin offers many opportunities for growth through competitions, including regional events.  Regional events are a great way for students to continue to hone their skills after district events (take place in early December), and leading up to the State Leadership and Skills Conference.    Students can register for ONE Skilled, ONE Leadership, and ONE Occupational/Misc event as long as the contest times do not conflict.

Additional FAQ

  1. Is welding a timed event? If so, how long and can it be split into multiple days or does it all have to be done in the same day, start to stop with no brakes? Students will have 4 projects – student will get 40 min each for 3 projects and the 4th will get 30 min.
  2. When will the prints be sent out? Yes emailed on Monday
  3. Can the students see the prints ahead of time? No.
  4. Do they only get one set of metal parts or can they have extra pieces? School will have to supply materials, on the attached list.  One set of materials.
  5. The metal listed is very thick. Can spray transfer and pulse be used in GMAW? GMAW spray or short circuit should keep the playing field level.  Not everyone has pulse.
  6. Will the knowledge exam be scheduled at a specific time, or can we schedule it a convenient time for the student? By all means, make it convenient.
  7. Does the knowledge exam need to be taken in the same time frame as the skill demos? No, again, make it convenient for the student’s schedule.  Once the exam is started, please have them finish it in the same sitting.
  8. The document states, “Upload one file with all contestant’s one-page resumes and include detailed pictures of each weldment skill demo.” (4 demos 4 pages)  It also states that the max size should be 5 pages.  Is it safe to assume that I would need one five page document for each student that I have enrolled in the contest? You assume correctly.
  9. Are they allowed to use grinders to fix mistakes? Yes
  10. Are the welds allowed to be cleaned up with a wire wheel for pictures? Absolutely.  They are much easier to see if they are cleaned up.
