The Wyoming state SkillsUSA competition was April 11-13.

College of Engineering and Applied Science K-14 Outreach Coordinator Teddi Hofmann served as a volunteer at a state-level SkillsUSA competition.

Hofmann led a student activity at the 21st annual State Skills and Leadership Conference, which took place Monday, April 11 through Wednesday, April 13 in Casper, Wyo. The theme of this year’s conference was “Champions At Work,” and the statewide competition included a series of written tests in various subjects, along with aptitude tests in areas like welding, carpentry and drafting.

SkillsUSA is a career-technical student organization that serves students in secondary and post-secondary technical, skilled, and service occupations, including health occupations. According to the organization’s website, “SkillsUSA prepares America's high-performance workers and provides quality education experiences for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development. SkillsUSA builds and reinforces self-confidence, work attitudes and communications skills. It emphasizes total quality at work, high ethical standards, superior work skills, life-long education and pride in the dignity of work.”

Hofmann was a judge in the “Engineering Technology” portion of the competition, in which five teams participated. She also facilitated a hands-on engineering activity wherein students were presented with the challenge to design a bike helmet with limited materials.
