$2,000 Grant for Chapter Excellence Program Chapters

$2,000 Grant, Sponsored By Lowe’s, Recognizes Chapter Excellence

There’s an exciting opportunity for chapters to be recognized for exemplary chapter performance and to receive $2,000. SkillsUSA’s Chapter Excellence Program (CEP) establishes a quality baseline that all chapters are encouraged to attain, with extra incentive for exemplary performance. The program consists of four award levels, with the first three recognized by the state and the final level eligible for national recognition. The 24 chapters recognized as Models of Excellence will receive a $2,000 section or chapter grant. The national application deadline is April 1, but state deadline dates vary and may be quickly approaching. Ensure that your chapter receives the recognition it deserves by completing the CEP application.
