What is SkillsUSA?

July 18, 2013  | Video

Nail Care has been an official SkillsUSA contest since 1998. Like the other categories in this nationwide competition, the contest challenges students in an entire occupational career area, not just a skill set in an occupation. The nail care contest consists of six segments, each of which is about 45 minutes. Similar to a contest like Miss America, entrants compete on a local/state level first, then the winners at that level continue competing until finally working their way up to the national conference.
