CARSON CITY, Nev. - The names of the top finishers in the Calculated Industries/ SkillsUSA "Invented in the USA" scholarship competition have been announced. The scholarship competition was open to secondary, post-secondary and career and technical school students who are members of SkillsUSA.

Student inventors participating in the "Invented in the USA" scholarship competition were asked to submit designs for a new SkillsUSA-trade-related calculator; measuring, leveling or sensing device; or any other electronic or electromechanical device that would be useful to the trades represented by SkillsUSA.

"Justin Gordon, the first place winner, had a particularly good idea and presented it in a very clear, very professional manner."
