State Leadership & Skills Conference

March 26-28, 2024

Greenville, SC

Every year, members from across the state meet in Greenville, SC to compete for State Championships in Leadership, Occupational, and Skill-related competitions. Students have the opportunity to showcase their talents within a wide variety of events, including those associated with their career cluster. We also celebrate the work of our advisors, state board, state officers, and business & industry partners. Our Advisor of the Year and new state officers are honored, and chapters can earn awards through the Chapter Excellence Program.


There are over 120 total competitions at the SkillsUSA South Carolina State Leadership and Skills Conference. Nearly all of these competitions are held for the High School and College / Post-Secondary Levels and 20 are offered at the Middle School Level with the opportunity to move on to the National Conference.

There are also 13 State-Only competitions offered this year. Competitors who enter into a State-Only competition may also enter into another competition that is not State-Only, increasing the opportunities and experiences for our students.

Please note that the below competitions will occur outside of the Greenville area and on a different date than the regular conference. Please see the Locations, Dates, & Times page (button below) to view these. These competitions will occur at Midlands Technical College - Airport Campus.
