On April 28, 42 Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School students competed at the annual SkillsUSA state competition held in Marlborough, MA. Upper Cape Tech competed with technical schools from all over Massachusetts.

            SkillsUSA is a national organization serving nearly a quarter of a million high school and college students. SkillsUSA has the active support of more than 1,000 corporations, trade associations, businesses and labor unions at the national level.

            Student membership in SkillsUSA offers leadership, citizenship and character development programs, along with activities to complement skills training. These programs help students prepare to go to work with high standards in trade ethics, workmanship, scholarship and safety. It promotes understanding of the free enterprise system and encourages the development of patriotism through democratic practices in local chapters.
