“If you are looking for strong leadership, self-pride, confidence, and dedication, you will see this in the contestants with SkillsUSA,” said State Farm’s Darrell Andrews, the SkillsUSA National CRT Chairman. “The energy is catching and to see the contestants performing at this level shows what the next generation has to offer.”

Kristen Felder, CEO and founder of Collision Hub, said her organization is the exclusive video broadcaster of the competition.
