Skills USA

Each year Vt  WoodNet takes part in the Skills USA competition held at Camp Johnson in Colchester, Vermont.  High school students from around the state compete  in over 50 categories which include CAD, cosmetology, public speaking, aviation maintenance, welding, auto mechanics, carpentry, plumbing, wiring, cabinet building, etc. Winners of the Vermont competitions move on to the national convention held each year in Kansan City, Missouri.This year’s VT competition will be held on April 3rd and 4th. For the past 8 years, VT WoodNet has sponsored the Vermont cabinet building competition. WoodNnet members create the cabinet design, pre-cut parts, and donate the materials needed along with local businesses.  We are proud to be a part of Skills USA and we will continue to promote woodworking to the youth of Vermont.
