Our Chapter Excellence Program honors SkillsUSA chapters in the areas of personal, workplace and technical skills. It aligns with the SkillsUSA Framework and establishes a baseline for quality chapters, with incentives for top performers.
The program consists of three award levels. Each level is designed to give chapters a benchmark for success and future improvement, leading to stronger chapters and more prepared students. The first level of the program honors chapters for meeting standards as a “Quality Chapter.” The second level recognizes chapters that go beyond the basic requirements with bronze, silver and gold “Chapters of Distinction” awards. The third level will honor the best chapters in the nation with a “Models of Excellence” award at the 2019 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference.
In this program, the focus is on the achievement of the students as a result of chapter involvement, not on the number of activities completed or participation in competitions. The emphasis is on student efforts in assuming personal responsibility, integrity, work ethic and organization in chapter activities. The more a chapter applies the SkillsUSA Framework, the greater the chance for CEP honors.
