- You must be a professional member of SkillsUSA.
- You must register at least 90 percent of your previous year’s training program.
- You must have a minimum of 15 members in your training program.
How it works:
- You register your members online at the SkillsUSA website.
- Each week, the national headquarters will draw the name of one lucky advisor and announce the winner on our Facebook page.
- The winning advisor will select one of the sponsored prizes.
- As a bonus, if you exceed last year’s membership number by 10 percent, you will receive two tickets in the drawing.
- Your name will continue in the drawing until you win or until the program ends.
- The program runs from Sept. 17 through Nov. 15, 2012.
It’s as easy at that! The sooner you register your members, the sooner you are entered to win!
Each SkillsUSA state association has the opportunity to provide five Lowe’s gift cards to deserving teachers who have significantly expanded or influenced SkillsUSA membership in that state. Some states may honor teachers specifically for membership growth, while others may recognize those who mentor new teachers to establish SkillsUSA chapters. In total participation states, teachers may be recognized for ensuring that each member is actively engaged in SkillsUSA.
Whatever the criteria, this opportunity allows SkillsUSA advisors to be honored at their state conference for allowing more students to experience SkillsUSA. Check with your SkillsUSA state director to see how the gift cards are awarded in your state.
We’re offering incredible experiences to honor SkillsUSA advisors who have achieved
100-percent membership in their training programs.
- You must be professional member.
- All students in your training program must be SkillsUSA members.
- You must have a minimum of 15 members in the training program.
