Beauty/Cosmetology Related SkillsUSA

Utah Beauty/Cosmetology Related SkillsUSA contests will have a few changes this year which include:  Barbering will be held at Davis Tech  – Special Thanks to Penny Romero for being willing to step into Fred’s shoes!  I am looking for an Educator to help lead the nail competition – please contact me if you are interested. Finally, we need to shorten total time on the competitions, so this year we will have a few less elements to the competitions that we may have had in previous years or what the students will experience at the national level.  Here are a few of the details:


1.       No written tests for any competition.
2.       Any tie breakers will be based on the most difficult element/skill of the competition (Ie. Haircut, tips, etc. ) host or judges can determine the element, prior to the competition (If you have preferences, let me know, we will decide by the end of Feb. and publish for all).
3.       Total number of elements of competition will change slightly  –
a.       No written tests
b.      Customer consult or customer service element may be removed due to time – more details will come through the Ed. Chair/leads
4.       Competitions on are all starting much earlier on Thursday 3/26/20 and can go as long as needed through the day, however no contestants can leave the site before a judge & host agree that their work station is clean.
5.       Competitions on Friday 3/27/20, scoring for judges must finish at 1:15 pm and scores submitted by 2:30 pm to the state team.  Students may stay longer if they need to clean their stations.
6.       Each school that participates should plan on bringing items that can be contributed to the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place prizes per competition they have students competing in.  If the hosts or state team get vendor sponsors that will be a bonus to the prize packages.
7.       Each school is also responsible for providing judges who are disconnected from your school/students for at least 2 years – more details will be coming
8.       Please supply six judges prizes on the day of the competition so they can be given at the end of each of the events.

If you have concerns or questions please let me know and I will look to get answers or solve concerns to the best of my ability.  Please forward this email on to any members of your team that I may have missed or on to your secondary partners. 

Culinary

Utah Culinary SkillsUSA will have a few changes this year which include:  PostSecondary Commercial Baking will be at UVU – Special Thanks to Chef Troy for taking this on!  We need to shorten total time on the competitions, so this year we will have a few less elements to the competitions that we may have had in previous years or what the students will experience at the national level.  Here are a few of the details:


1.       No written tests for any competition.
2.       Any tie breakers will be based on the most difficult element of the competition (Ie. Protein Fabrication, texture of Bread, etc.) host or judges can determine the element, prior to the competition (If you have preferences, let me know we will decide by the end of Feb. and publish for all).
3.       Total number of elements of competition will change slightly  –
a.       Commercial Baking – no muffin, no cookie (still 6 elements )
b.      Culinary Arts – no appetizer and/or salad, no soup may be a possibility, change may happen on site if there are significant number of contestants and/or timing becomes an issue
4.       Competitions on Thursday 3/26/20 can go as long as needed through the day, however no contestants can leave the site before a judge & host agree that their work station is clean.
5.       Competitions on Friday 3/27/20, scoring for judges must finish at 2:15 pm and scores submitted by 3:30 pm to the state team.  Students may stay longer if they need to clean their stations.
6.       Each school that participates should plan on bringing items that can be contributed to the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place prizes per competition they have students competing in.  If the hosts or state team get vendor sponsors that will be a bonus to the prize packages.
7.       All contestants will need to bring a personal resume – we are hoping to have a few employers on site to interview after the event.  I will send more information on this soon.

If you have concerns or questions please let me know and I will look to get answers or solve concerns to the best of my ability.  Please forward this email on to any members of your team that I may have missed or on to your secondary partners.

The teams shall cut materials to size per bill of materials. It must be in as-milled condition. The teams shall bring the parts cut to size and labeled as specified in the bill of materials to orientation


We will incorporate stop points this year to follow more closely with the Natl. competition.

Team Project Outcomes:

·       Complete project in the 4-hour time frame given
·       Demonstrate knowledge of AWS weld symbols

 ESSAY AND DRAWINGS

The team essay topic is: You are tasked with welding an aluminum vessel.  The material you will be welding is 5086 AL. and is 3/16” Thick. Strength and ductility are the most important items to consider when selecting filler metal.  The project parameters are as follows – Welds need to be aesthetically pleasing and must pass X-ray testing.  Time is of the essence and welder training is minimal.  You shall determine the correct filler metal to use for the project as well as determine the welding process and make recommendations of what welding equipment (be specific on the exact machine) to use.  Select the proper filler metal, process and your choice of welding equipment, tell us why you made those choices.
1-page total per team for the Essay.
Submit drawings: Each team shall prepare a drawing of a project they would like to build in the welding fabrication competition. (Submit drawing in PDF format sized for 11” x 17” paper via email to Rex Hardman)
 
The drawings and essay shall be submitted via email by February 27, 2020 by end of day. Essay and drawings shall be emailed to Rex Hardman at the above address. If delivery confirmation is not received, please re-submit your material. There is a limit of 20 teams total for this competition (due to space constraints).  The drawings and essay will be graded and scored to determine the top 20 teams that will compete.

 GENERAL RULES

  • All welds will be left in the as welded condition (no grinding of the welds until they have been judged). The grinder may be used to prep the project to be welded. You may clean the project and welds with a wire brush.
  • Flapper wheels may be used for preparing weld joints. NOTE: Make sure all welds are graded before grinding.

 ORIENTATION

Orientation will be held Thursday @ 9:30AM, March 26th at Local 27 Iron Workers Training Center located at 7022 West North Frontage Rd., West Valley City, UT.  Teams will receive their time slots for the competition at the orientation meeting.

3. Time limits will be established on the contest (4 hours).
 4. Welding and cutting operation instructions will be specified in drawings.
 5. Welding equipment used in the contest may be obtained from a variety of manufacturers and may include transformers, rectifiers, and/or inverters.
 6. Filler metals will be compatible with the metals being welded and will be detailed on the contest procedure sheet. Instructions to the contestants will define more specifically the filler metals that may be used.
 7. Welds will be evaluated visually utilizing a rating system as established by the SkillsUSA Technical Committee. Nondestructive and/or destructive tests may be used to complete the project evaluation.
 8. Final judging of the welded projects will be evaluated per the difficulty of the assigned task and by utilizing the following visual inspection criteria: dimensional accuracy including distortion and conformity to drawing requirements.

 

 

 

 
 
 
Each team provides their own steel (this material shall be checked in at orientation) Please refer to Part #'s so that we can have uniformity in the projects.
