The mikeroweWORKS Foundation and SkillsUSA 2011 Scholarship Opportunity

Champions At Work

The mikeroweWORKS Foundation, in partnership with SkillsUSA, is proud to announce a new scholarship opportunity for SkillsUSA members who have competed and placed first in their state association competition.

The scholarship is to provide support for SkillsUSA state contest winners who have insufficient chapter, school or community resources to participate at the 2011 National SkillsUSA Championships. A total of twenty $1,000 scholarships will be given away to help offset the costs of travel and to participate in the National SkillsUSA Championships. The winners will also have the opportunity to attend a luncheon with a member of The mikeroweWORKS Foundation staff at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Kansas City on Tuesday, June 21st.

Acceptance is based on a narrative of one-page, or less that identifies the student’s need for the scholarship and lack of school or community resources. A student may be nominated with a letter of recommendation written by their advisor, or state director. Applications are to be sent to the national office of SkillsUSA for review and postmarked by Friday, June 3. The national office will notify the winners the following week.

    What a great opportunity for both the donor and the recipients. It’s easy to talk about doing good and admirable when you are able to DO that good. Thank you, mikeroweWORKS Foundation, for being so very generous. These students will not disappoint…you just may have a hard time choosing!

  • PNO

    Thank you for your contribution, as a past National president of this organization and not proud professional member and contest chair your support and the support others change lives. It changed mine.

  • Tina

    We are so honored to be able to give these scholarships and know that the good people at SkillsUSA will be able to identify the competitors who deserve the help. I trust that the students who receive this aid will use it well and that it will help shape their lives in a good way no matter what career path they choose to take.

    I am thrilled to be able to attend and host a luncheon for the recipients. In addition, we are happy to relay that Lee Jeans has matched our initial contribution which allows our total contribution to help 20 deserving students. Look for that announcement next week. (Thank You VF Corp/Lee Jeans! Hope we make you proud on the Lee National Denim Day front as well!)

    On behalf of mikeroweWORKS and The mikeroweWORKS Foundation, thank you. We are happy to support organizations like Skills, AED Foundation, ACTE, Construct My Future, AEM Foundation, FFA Foundation and so many more like them that support the trades.

    Thank you to all.
