Pin Design Contest

2015 National Conference Pin and T-shirt Design Competition

Sponsored by Lowe’s



SkillsUSA and Lowe’s sponsor a national conference pin and T-shirt design competition that is open to all dues-paying student members of the organization. Two winners were selected from the more than 500 entries that were submitted for this competition.


This competition is open to all registered SkillsUSA student members who are enrolled in a career and technical education program at a high school or college/postsecondary institution with an active SkillsUSA chapter. Membership for the 2014-15 school year will be verified by the national headquarters (the name must appear on a roster for this school year).

Only one entry per SkillsUSA member is permitted, and the same student may not win both events.


All entries must be received (not postmarked) in the SkillsUSA national headquarters by close of business on Feb. 1, 2015, by mail only. Do not send electronic entries due to issues receiving large electronic files, printing files with accurate colors, etc.
