Thousands of students whip up a grand SkillsUSA finale for Kansas City

Students powered up robots, slipped on their oven mitts and rolled under trucks on Thursday. It was SkillsUSA’s big competition day, with 6,000 students competing in 99 contests. The 50th anniversary of the SkillsUSA conference also marks its last here. After 21 years it has outgrown the city’s available space and will move to Louisville, Ky., next year.
