Virginia SkillsUSA first place champions


Posted: May 23, 2019

Hundreds of students from across the state gathered in Virginia Beach for the state SkillsUSA Leadership Conference and Skills Championships in April. Three students in the Newport News Public Schools' Telecommunications program earned first place in the OSHA Rules, Regulations and Procedures competition. The team consisted of Jerrl Bailey, a junior at Warwick High School; and Seth Hursey and Michael McClellan, juniors at Woodside High School.

The student team created an Occupational Safety and Health Administration Rules Scrapbook to display their research in the video production occupational area. They also created a video as one of their projects for the competition, which answered questions about safety rules and precautions with the television production vehicle. The competition also included an interview by a panel of judges.

The team advanced to the National SkillsUSA competition in Louisville, Kentucky.

SkillsUSA is a national organization of high school and college students enrolled in training programs in technical, skilled, and service occupations.
