PREFACE


Competitive activities have been included in VICA's Youth Development
Program to motivate and develop an enthusiasm for learning that will help
trade, industrial, health, and technical education youth take their place
in society. Because competition is basic to the system of free enterprise
and democracy, under which these young people will live and work, competitive
activities will prove to be practical and valuable experience for their future
industrial careers. At the same time, competitive activities are not without
the value of personal enrichment. The student is afforded to achieve a sense
of accomplishment and recognition for skills and abilities as he learns to
appreciate and develop good craftsmanship.

Participation in contests is not new to the field of trade, industrial,
health, and technical education. For more than 25 years, students in various
states have participated in contests similar to the ones presented in this
publication. This activity has long been encouraged and endorsed by educators
in all fields of vocational and technical training. The First Constitutional
Convention that founded the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America set as a
goal for its students the opportunity to participate in competitive activities.
In 1965, the Administrative Board of the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America,
Inc. began work to structure a program that would be meaningful and worthwhile
for its students. The State Supervisors of Trade and Industrial Education meet-
ing at the AVA Convention, December 5, 1966, unanimously approved a resolution
recommending that the "Vocational Industrial Clubs of America initiate a competi-
tive activities program."

This publication contains no new or untried activities, but is a compilation
of what many state trade and industrial youth clubs have offered and refined over
the past quarter of a century. These activities have proven to be educationally
sound and have a definite value to the development of students preparing for
trade, industrial, health, and technical careers.

National VICA is indebted to many individuals and states for material found
in this publication. Because the list would be too long, individual names have
been omitted. However, National VICA expresses its sincere gratitude to the
following states for assistance and guidance on the preparation of these activ-
ities: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, New
York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
