Save the Date! National Awards and Recognition Session Goes Live This June

A SkillsUSA year like no other demands a SkillsUSA Awards and Recognition session like no other! The awards, the cheers, the pride that our members feel for themselves, their classmates, and their trades — those are the elements of an emotional, inspiring, unforgettable Awards and Recognition session, the kind SkillsUSA has been known for since its founding in 1965 and the kind we WILL have again in 2021. We have spent this year apart, but join us as we come together to celebrate the achievements of our members LIVE on Thursday, June 24, from 3:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. ET.

Consider joining us in one of three ways:

  • As long as it’s safe to do so, host an in-person chapter watch party. Have your chapter officers (incoming and outgoing) plan fun activities for chapter members and serve food. (Who doesn’t love pizza?)
  • Host adrive-in chapter watch party. Pull out your projector, purchase an FM transmitter online (they are inexpensive), and — bada-bing, bada-boom — your chapter has their own drive-in theater to watch the Awards and Recognition session.
  • Not able to join in person? Host asimultaneous watch party by streaming the session on Zoom, Google Meets, etc.

PS: Don’t just include current members — invite former and prospective members, parents, partners, school administrators and local elected officials to join and celebrate with you.

Need funds to host a chapter watch party? Apply here for a $100 watch party grant. Grants are limited to the first 50 SkillsUSA chapters that apply.
