Delegate and Delegate Assembly Information
SkillsUSA is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO), whereby student members are charged with the responsibility of governing the affairs associated with the student constitution. Chapters are entitled to student voting delegates commensurate with their membership to represent the views of their chapter within the structure of the State House of Delegates. Please be sure your chapter is represented at the SkillsUSA Maryland Delegate Assembly, held each year on the first day of the State Championship. Learn more about serving as a State Delegate by reviewing the instructions.
Professional Development Test
Students participating in SkillsUSA Maryland state competitions must complete a professional development (PD) online test before the State Championship. PD test scores will determine contestant rankings when technical scores are close. Students are strongly encouraged to review the study guide and sample questions in preparation for the PD test.
