Due to impending inclement weather and multiple school closings, the West Tennessee SkillsUSA Regional championship that was to be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015, has been cancelled. The following contests will take an online test to determine who will advance to state:
Automotive Service Technology
Automotive Service Technology-MLR 1
Automotive Service Technology-MLR 2
Automotive Service Technology-MLR 3
Automotive Service Technology-MLR 4
Job Skill Demonstration A
These online tests must be proctored by someone other than the SkillsUSA advisor or another teacher in the training program being tested. Please review the attached documents and complete the Online Testing Ethics Form and have the proctor email it to Brandon.Hudson@tn.gov<mailto:Brandon.Hudson@tn.gov>. The testing window will begin on Monday, March 9, 2015, and end on Friday, March 13, 2015.
The following contests will advance straight to the State Leadership and Skills Conference and do not require an online test:
Crime Scene Investigation
Electrical Construction Wiring
Carpentry will meet at TCAT-Memphis on Friday, March 13, 2015, at 9 a.m. to conduct their hands-on contest.
Due to the inclement weather that hit Tennessee over the past two weeks and with many school districts closures, the Tennessee SkillsUSA Regional Championships have been postponed. The new snow dates are as follows:
|Region||Location||New Regional Championship Date||Registration Window on Day of Event|
|Upper East||Northeast State Community College||Tuesday, March 3, 2015||8 – 9 a.m.|
|West||TCAT-Memphis||Thursday, March 5, 2015||8 – 9 a.m.|
|Middle||TCAT-Nashville||Monday, March 9, 2015||8 – 9 a.m.|
|East||TCAT-Knoxville||Wednesday, March 11, 2015||8 – 9 a.m.|
Since these dates are after the State Leadership and Skills Conference online hotel registration opens on March 1, 2015, at 5 p.m. EST, I suggest making hotel reservations as normal, then cancelling any unneeded rooms after your regional event. Please note that the hotel registration deadline is March 26, 2015, at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Thank you all for your cooperation and support. I understand how the inclement weather has affected your preparation for the regional events. Thank you again for the hard work and dedication you have for your students and for this organization. If there are any questions, please let me know.
The West Tennessee Regional Conference has been postponed due to inclement weather. A makeup date that allows ample time to register for state conference hotels will be posted ASAP. Please contact Brandon Hudson with any questions.
