The United Nations, in November 2014, declared 15 July as World Youth Skills Day. Since then, the day is celebrated throughout the world to strengthen the skill-driven industry linkages by creating awareness among youth, government and the industry stakeholders regarding the challenges faced by skilled workers. National Skills University (NSU), Islamabad to commemorate the WYSD organized a countrywide skills competition to recognize the work of essential skilled workers and to inculcate the spirit of competition and to showcase the great talent of our youth.
