Skill-It-Thon is a statewide digital skills initiative, generously supported by Microsoft TechSpark and built upon the Skills for Jobs learning pathways. The initiative is designed to drive inclusive economic growth in Mississippi by helping job seekers successfully navigate the paths to in-demand roles in a more digital economy.


These role-based learning paths can be completed in a short amount of time and provide opportunities for people—at any stage in their career—to reskill and upskill for in-demand roles.


From May 1 through June 30, participants can earn points with a certificate of completion for a Foundational Skills course (worth one point) or Career Essentials Certificate for a Career pathway (worth 10 points). The more you learn, the more points you earn! Top winners in each category can earn cash prizes.


*These pathways and courses are available to all registrants regardless of challenge participation.
