    Benson Polytechnic High School participates in SkillsUSA, a partnership of students, teachers and industry representatives, working together to ensure America has a skilled work force. It helps each student excel.  SkillsUSA is a national nonprofit organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, including health occupations.

     

    As a part of the SkillsUSA experience, students in the various career technical education programs at Benson compete with students from other CTE schools in Oregon at the Oregon SkillsUSA conference each spring.  Gold medal winners in the state competitions then move on to compete in the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, Missouri in June.

     

    Beginning in 2006 students in Benson’s broadcasting program have competed in the SkillsUSA Audio/Radio Production contest. 

    KBPS students have been very successful in SkillsUSA!
