Happy SkillsUSA Week!

Happy SkillsUSA Week! I hope you have a great week showcasing your programs, SkillsUSA and career and technical education.

There are a lot of helpful resources on our website to help you make the most of the week. Download a sample news release, a SkillsUSA fact sheet, a sample proclamation and sample school announcement to help you get the word out. You can find it all here: www.skillsusa.org/educators/skillsusaweek.shtml

Another great way to promote SkillsUSA is with public service announcements. NASCAR correspondent and SkillsUSA alumna Wendy Venturini recorded these PSAs to help us spread the word about SkillsUSA. We have both audio and video versions for you to use with local media (radio, television, cable or school networks). You can download the audio or video files here:  www.skillsusa.org/educators/psa.shtml

Finally, we have some great advocacy tools to help you tell lawmakers about the importance of career and technical education and SkillsUSA. You can also find local media for your press releases. You can find that information here: http://capwiz.com/skillsusa/home/

There has never been a better time to be skilled. SkillsUSA Week is a great way to spread that message and promote all the good work you are doing.

Have a great week!
