February 7-13, 2016
SkillsUSA Week is celebrated the second week of February each year.
SkillsUSA Week gives state associations, advisors and student members the opportunity to promote SkillsUSA programs at activities at the local and state levels.
During SkillsUSA week, members can also help raise awareness of SkillsUSA. This can be accomplished through field trips to local businesses, an open house for parents or industry partners, a visit to local community organizations to make a brief presentation about SkillsUSA, or providing news releases and public service announcements to local media outlets for possible distribution.
Involvement in activities such as these brings positive recognition to SkillsUSA, and to local schools and their students. Also, it underscores the importance of SkillsUSA’s purposes and mission, which is to help prepare America’s high performance workers in public career and technical programs.
