DHS SkillsUSA Students Attend National SkillsUSA Conference in Atlanta, GA

DHS SkillsUSA Team

Dickinson High School SkillsUSA students attended the National SkillsUSA Conference in Atlanta, GA. Students competed in Architectural Drafting, Job Skill Demonstration, Power Equipment Technology, and Welding Sculpture.

  • Lucas Shilman participated in the Architectural Drafting competition, which allows students to use their drafting skills to solve an architectural problem. Lucas placed 13th out of 44 in the nation at the high school level.
  • Sage Morton participated in the Job Skill Demonstration competition. The competition requires a demonstration of performing an occupational skill accompanied by a clear explanation of the topic using experiments, displays, or practical operations. She competed in a very competitive room, placing 8th out of 18.
  • Hunter Moreno is a veteran competitor in the Power Equipment Technology competition, which is consistent with the technology standards for the multi-category accreditation task list outlined by the Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC). Competitors perform tasks representative of those encountered in a dealership's service department. Hunter placed 14th in his competition.
  • Justin Wardell competed in the Welding Sculpture competition. It allows students to demonstrate their ability to design and produce a welded sculpture and describe all aspects of their design creation. Welded sculptures are displayed for the national competition, along with a professional portfolio documenting evidence of creating the original work. Justin's official place will be released after the break-out scoring is released next week.

The students are advised by Welding Instructor Clarence Hauck, Drafting Instructor Marjorie Lehman, Small Engine Repair Instructor Jakob Ohl, and Construction Technology Instructor Scott Schmidt. A big congratulations to all!
