April 4-8 – State Competitions held at various locations

3D Visualization & Animation Link to PDF
The world of 3D is rapidly expanding, and career opportunities exist in a wide range of fields, including architecture, games, product and industrial design, civil engineering, and film and television animation. This contest allows students to step into a real-world 3D production environment where creative output must be accomplished within specific timeframes, resources and design constraints. This is a two-person team event and includes a preliminary written exam. Contestants must produce high quality images and an animated short subject using 3D computer-generated images. Students are evaluated on their technical knowledge, production skills and creative abilities – including visual development and storyboarding. Competitors can also interface with and get feedback from high-profile judges with successful careers in 3D visualization and animation
Interactive Application and Video Game Development Link to PDF
Open to a team of two active SkillsUSA members enrolled in programs focused on creating interactive applications and/or video game design and development as occupational objectives. For this contest, teams will create their product in advance of the competition. On the day of the competition, students will present their game to a judge or judges and discuss game play, mechanics and other discussion prompts.
Web Design and Development Link to PDF
Teams will complete a series of challenges focusing on website usability and accessibility, with at least one challenge related to scripting (client or server or both). Teams will also be evaluated on the process they use to meet the challenges and how well they work as a team. Teams may be interacting with a local server environment. For the state competition, teams will be presented with a web design and development task (rebuild of a local site) on the day of the competition and complete the project in one day. Participants will need a good background in HTML / CSS and have strong organizational skills.
