CHARLTON — Students from four Massachusetts high schools met up at Bay Path Regional Technical Vocational High School last week to compete for the gold in the yearly SkillsUSA competition.

SkillsUSA is a nationwide program that serves more than 300,000 teachers and high school students across the country who are preparing for careers or teaching in the fields of technical, skilled and service occupations. Formally known as VICA (Vocational Industrial Clubs of America) the program provides "education experience for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development," according to the organization's website. SkillsUSA programs include local, state and national competitions in which students demonstrate their mastery of these skills.
