SkillsUSA Inc. and Lowe’s

Grant Provider's 990

Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #163897

Grant Description

Grants of up to $25,000 to USA and Territories technical school student organizations that are funding source chapters to use social media to benefit their school or community. Funding source chapters will compete for cash prizes with social media campaigns. The goals of this program are to:

-Promote SkillsUSA to a minimum of three identified audiences. For example, incoming students, parents and business leaders.

-Emphasize how Lowe’s is allowing your chapter to excel in local communities.

-Provide funds for campus or community improvement. Consider what is needed in your local community or on campus. Is it a women’ s shelter upgrade, an upgrade of your CTE lab, a renovation at a local elementary school playground or the planting of a community garden?

There will be three overall winners in the SkillsUSA and Lowe’s Social Media Campaign Challenge, with the first-place winner receiving up to $25,000 and the second- and third-place winners each receiving a minimum $10,000. If the winning chapter does not request the full $25,000, the remaining dollars will be split between the second- and third-place winners.
