State Conference Registration
Due to an unusually high number of student disqualifications at the 2016 state conference from a lack of National Membership Registration plus a significant number of membership registrations that were submitted after the state membership deadline, major changes have been made to the 2017 State Conference Deadline calendar and a Financial Penalty has been added for late registrations.
With the New State Conference Registration System on the National SkillsUSA website, student contestants MUST BE REGISTERED, SUBMITTED AND PAID members of SkillsUSA BEFORE they will be able to register for any contest at the State Competition.
The 2017 SkillsUSA Utah Leadership and Skills Conference registration costs and deadlines are as follows:
The ULSC Registration procedure is new this year. We apologize for the lack of communication and information. The new registration procedure, information, and walk throughs can be found on our State Website (www.utahskillsusa.org) by:
