State Championships in Roofing

                              World Congress Center                          March 9-10, 2023

SkillsUSA is a CTSO (Career and Technical Student Organization) that is made up of a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. A nonprofit national education association, SkillsUSA serves middle-school, high-school and college/postsecondary students preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations.

The SkillsUSA State Championships are career competition events showcasing the best career and technical education students in the state. Gold medal winners at the state level will compete at the national level in June.  GARCA is very excited about having the first ever State Roofing Competition in 2023 on Thermoplastic. In order to prepare students for this competition, we need contractors to partner with high schools in their area.

Partnering with Schools in Your Area

There are many benefits to partnering with high schools for both the contractor and the educator:

  • Mentor high school students.
  • Provide internships and job training.
  • Help students learn basic skills.
  • Establish a resource for future roofing needs.

Construction Ready (formerly CEFGA) has done an incredible job of identifying those high schools in the state of Georgia that are currently offering construction classes. Each contractor will be given the contact information for 3-4 of the schools in their area. 

Other Areas Where we Need Help

  • Design competition including written questions, scoresheet, floor layout, materials needed, and tools needed.
  • Donate materials and specialty tools for students to build their own mockup.
  • Donate a roof mockup.
  • Determine prizes for each contest and secure sponsors.
  • Run competition on March 9-10, which includes soliciting judges ahead of time, orienting judges, setting up and organizing contest area and score.

If you would like to volunteer your time, materials or tools, please reach out to Betsy Rahm at info@garca.org.
