Welcome to the SkillsUSA Champions Advocacy Site. You can make a big difference in just five minutes. That’s all it will take to learn the issues and then send one or more letters to Washington. The federal government has an enormous impact on our interests. This is a way for you to let policymakers know what is working and what can be improved.
