ClarkDietrich Building Systems is excited to once again participate in the annual SkillsUSA Championships, June 25-26, in Kansas City, MO. Each year, more than 5,000 students compete in 90 occupational and leadership skills contests, with nearly 300 students participating in carpentry and building events. This year, ClarkDietrich is proud to provide RedHeader RO and ProSTUD Drywall Framing System products for the competition.


“The SkillsUSA Championship is a great opportunity for building and construction students to test their knowledge with modern equipment and products that are used in today’s projects,” said Terry Westerman, vice president of marketing, ClarkDietrich Building Systems. “We are proud to be a long-time supporter of SkillsUSA and the organization’s dedication to ensure the American construction industry has a skilled workforce.”


RedHeader RO is designed for interior and exterior framing applications, and will be used by students to construct a wall partition with a window opening. By using single stud members rather than a built-up header or jamb system, RedHeader offers significant labor savings. ProSTUD’s strength and high-performance features provide students with a lightweight solution for the construction of interior framing.


SkillsUSA helps establish industry standards for job skill training in the classroom, and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Labor.
