The ignITE Skills Challenge (ignITE) is an annual national-level skills competition organised by the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), with support from the Ministry of Education.

Now into its eighth year, ignITE is the only national skills competition for Normal stream students in Singapore. The competition was created to excite them and highlight the value of skills. Challenges are designed to be fun and engaging to make learning enjoyable and memorable.

This year’s competition features 15 skill challenges. This includes seven new challenges. Details of the challenges can be found below. Prior to the Finals, participants attended a training workshop in March, and went through a preliminary round in April, to equip them with the necessary skills.


Shortlisted finalists will compete for the top spots on 21 May 2024. The programme of the finals can be found in Annex B. The top three teams of each challenge will win trophies and medals. A Champion Trophy will be awarded to the school that wins the most number of medals.
