In Nevada, Desert Oasis High School students had a vision of creating an impactful event that would benefit both the community and the school. They decided to plan a job fair in which students could experience the profes- sional world.
After rigorous planning by SkillsUSA members, the first event took place in January. With 33 vendors from local workforce and 2,060 students, the event was a major success. News stations decided to pick up the story and share the hard work students had put into planning the job fair, which sparked a huge change in the community of Enterprise.
