Help Timberland Pro Give Hunger the Boot!

May 14th, 2011

Timberland PRO is celebrating its 10th year of partnership with SkillsUSA by joining forces with the Harvester’s Food Network, the only food bank in the Kansas City region. They feed up to 66 thousand people every week.

Timberland PRO is running a virtual food drive from May 13 through June 24. One dollar can feed five people, so the goal is to raise $2,000 or 10,000 meals. Timberland PRO will match donations up to $2,000. Please visit www.timberland.harvesters.org to make your donation and be sure to pass it along to your friends.

Contest Updates

May 14th, 2011

We have posted many SkillsUSA Championships contest updates on our Web page. To view them, please visit www.skillsusa.org/compete/updates.shtml. There aren’t updates in every contest. If new information is presented about a contest, the information can be critical to a student’s competition.

We request the technical committee chairs to complete contest updates by June 1 so the students can prepare. If they do add or change anything after June 1, we have to mail (by first-class mail) the information directly to the competitors. So, after June 1, advisors should inform their students to  check their mail often.

Courtesy Corps

May 14th, 2011

We still have room for additional National Courtesy Corps (NCC) members for this year’s conference. SkillsUSA takes care of room and board for the NCC. Members only need to pay for their travel to and from Kansas City. If you have questions, please contact Jim
Kregiel at 703-737-0634 or by email to jkregiel@skillsusa.org.
