During the last week in June, the Kentucky Exposition Center was flooded with participants of the 2018 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference. SkillsUSA had attracted more than 18,000 attendees from many different states to Louisville for their 54th annual showcase. The competition kicked off during the final two days of the weeklong event where participants fought for first place in the CNC Turning, CNC Milling, and CNC Technicians Competition.
