Students Take Gold at SkillsUSA National Competition

National Champions! Carlie Losh (Indian Lake), Abigail Watson (Indian Lake), and Kelsey Barney (Riverside) are all smiles after winning the gold medal.

LOUISVILLE, KY- Ohio Hi-Point Printing and Graphic Arts students Kelsey Barney, Abigail Watson and Carlie Losh won the Gold Medal in the SkillsUSA national championship competition in Career Pathways – Arts and Communications at the 51st National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC) last week.

The SkillsUSA Championships, held in Louisville, Ky., took place June 24-25. During the week, more than 6,000 career and technical education students, all state contest winners, competed hands-on in 100 different trade, technical and leadership fields.

Barney, Losh and Watson are 2015 Printing and Graphic Arts graduates. “We are very proud of these girls and all that they have accomplished,” said Tom Carrig, Ohio Hi-Point’s Printing and Graphic Arts instructor. “They have worked hard and applied what they learned in the classroom to the community to help make a difference. This gold medal is extra special because of that.”

In the Career Pathways competition, student teams use the program course of study as the basis of a project that will benefit the competitor’s class, school, community or industry. The project must highlight an aspect of the student’s career cluster training. Upon completion of the project, the students develop a display and use it within the community to explain the training and project.

The Ohio Hi-Point students worked with Logan County Alliance for Community Partnerships and the Logan County Community Coalition for Opiate Relief Efforts (C.O.R.E.) to develop a marketing campaign that promoted education and resources dedicated to helping curb the spread of opiate addiction in and around the communities. The marketing materials designed and produced by the students included brochures, pamphlets, displays, a banner and stickers. The printed material interacted with web media and video that was also produced by the students.

“All of the students from across the nation that participated in the Career Pathways competition are true champions. Their dedication to excellence in their career field and their leadership skills were evident throughout the competition,” finished Carrig.

During the national competition, students worked against the clock and each other, proving their expertise in occupations like electronics, computer-aided drafting, precision machining, communications and cosmetology. All contests are run with the help of industry, trade associations, and labor organizations, and test competencies are set by industry. In addition, leadership contestants demonstrated their skills, which included extemporaneous speaking and conducting meetings by parliamentary procedure.
