Sample Press Releases, Medalist and Scoring Information
The complete list of SkillsUSA Championships winners is now available at: www.skillsusa.org/compete/results.shtml. For individual scores for contestants only click on Detailed Scores at: www.skillsusa-register.org/rpts/EventScores.aspx. (To get these scores, you must have a contestant number and date of birth). This site also had the medalists by contest or state. Just click on “Medalists” to get this information. You can then view “All” or by the state or by the state and a specific contest. If you click on the very first box and select a year, you can see the old data from prior conferences.
Also, trade releases specific to each contest area are located at: www.skillsusa.org/about/mediakit.shtml. Please feel free to use the wording from these when publicizing your students’ participation (e.g., as a delegate, Courtesy Corps member, competitor, etc.) in the NLSC.
And, a reminder that a sample press release template has also been added to SkillsUSA’s advocacy site. It’s another way to help get the word out to the media. This press release is editable by the sender and can be sent to five media outlets at a time. The site can be reached by going to: www.skillsusa.org/about/policy.shtml and clicking on “advocacy site.”
