SkillsUSA Week is Feb. 7-13, and you can participate in many ways. Honor your community supporters, connect with local business and industry professionals or make a presentation about your CTE program and SkillsUSA chapter at a school board meeting. We encourage you to celebrate all week by planning activities that follow this daily schedule of events created for local chapters nationwide:
Monday, Feb. 8, Recognition Day. Celebrate and honor members, advisors, administrators, business partners, community leaders and supporters who make a meaningful impact on your CTE program and SkillsUSA chapter.
Tuesday, Feb. 9, Give Back Day. Rally around your school and community by focusing on ways for your chapter to give back.
Wednesday, Feb. 10., Partner Day. Invite local business and industry leaders to connect with chapter members as you highlight the importance of developing the career-readiness skills found in the SkillsUSA Framework.
Thursday, Feb. 11, Advocacy Day. Amplify CTE in your community by conducting a local public relations activity, such as presenting to school board members, administrators or community leaders.
