This is a press release dedicated to SkillsUSA and their recent competition held at Rosedale
Technical Institute.

Pittsburgh, PA, January 24, 2013 --(PR.com)-- On Monday January 14th, 2013, 42 high school students

SkillsUSA is a national nonprofit organization serving teachers, high school and college students who are
preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations. Their mission is to help its
members become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens. Winners from the
regional event advance to the state finals in Hershey, Pa. Victors at the state level then move on to
nationals in Kansas City, Mo, where they will compete for post-secondary education scholarships
awarded by SkillsUSA.

This year's host, McKeesport High School/ATC, decided to team up with Rosedale Technical Institute.
Normally held at one of the region's participating schools, RTI was not only able to offer an even playing
field but also a number of resources critical for the various competitions. Rosedale instructors helped
design and then judge the tasks that made up each competition. Top students from around the area
contended in a number of Automotive, Diesel, Electrical and HVAC technology competition, as well as
Math and Job Interviewing skills competitions.
