Some people are having challenges with getting the documents to download through Chrome. Workaround: right click the link, and in a new Chrome tab paste that link and hit the enter key. Microsoft Edge and Firefox seem to work normally.

All students will have access to take the Professional Development Test online between March 23-April 6, 2023.  Depending on the contest, some students may also have a Technical Assessment assigned to them in the online portal.

The state office will begin posting our 2023 State Leadership and Skills Conference contests the week of January 16th.
