Connectivity Point Design & Installation was the proud sponsor of the Telecommunications Cabling category within the SkillsUSA New Hampshire Contest, which ran from March 14-21, 2014 at various New Hampshire-area schools and community colleges. On Friday March 21, Connectivity Point hosted the telecommunications cabling session at Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth, NH.
The New Hampshire Contest is part of SkillsUSA, a national organization whose goal is to prepare high school and college students for careers in technical, skilled and service occupations. SkillsUSA’s mission is to empower its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.
SkillsUSA includes local, state and national competitions in which students sign up to demonstrate occupational and leadership skills, and vocational schools have an opportunity to showcase their programs. The SkillsUSA New Hampshire opportunity will include competitions in over 40 categories, from Advertising Design to Welding. State winners go on the national competition: The SkillsUSA Championships in Kansas City.
More than 300,000 students and advisors join SkillsUSA annually, organized into more than 17,000 sections and 52 state and territorial associations. SkillsUSA has served more than 11.2 million members since its founding in 1965.
