SkillsUSA National Signing Day

The Spotlight Skilled Professionals Deserve

SkillsUSA National Signing Day

SkillsUSA National Signing Day is a nationwide celebration showcasing our next generation of skilled professionals and the skilled career paths that have been, are and always will be essential to America’s future. Each May, local SkillsUSA chapters are encouraged to host a National Signing Day event and invite industry partners, administrators, teachers, elected officials, SkillsUSA alumni, family and friends to honor students as they sign letters of intent for a job offer, apprenticeship or advanced technical training.

With the ongoing labor shortage continuing to affect so many skilled trade areas, generating student interest in pursuing these in-demand, high-paying careers — and honoring those who do — is more vital than ever.

Thanks to the generous support of the Lowe’s Foundation, State Farm and Constellation, we’re set to make this National Signing Day the biggest and boldest ever, but we can’t do it without our SkillsUSA chapters!
