Schools in Need
The focus for the 2013 SkillsUSA Lowe’s grant program was to identify schools, classrooms or teachers who have a very basic need to improve the quality of their students' educational experience. Grants were awarded ranging from $2,500 to $25,000.

Grant applications detailed the need for classroom improvements, upgrading or providing tangible tools for learning technical skills, leadership development opportunities, or providing for competition clothing that will give students the opportunity to compete at SkillsUSA events that would otherwise be unattainable.
