Danielle's Trip to Skills USA National Competition
Organized by: Thom Hollis
EVENT DATE May 05, 2015
SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry representatives working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student to excel. SkillsUSA is a national organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in technical, skilled and service occupations, including health occupations and for further education.
Danielle's dream is to become the best technical designer she can be. She strives to make the most of every day to fulfill that goal. She took it upon herself to enter Skills USA and go after the gold medal in the Bulletin Board Design competition. She won the local competition and the statewide competition, and now she has the opportunity of a lifetime to compete at the national level. But, as you might guess, that's expensive for a 17 year old high school junior. The total amount of money needed to go is $1060, but some of that total is being covered by points rewards she has received from local Skills USA competitions and gatherings, and some by a paid book cover design job she is currently finishing up.
To add to the issue at hand, she needs to cover the air fare expenses of $610 by May 5th.
As you know, any amount helps, so whatever you can do is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you and God Bless!
