The following news release is for use by instructors, parents or anyone who’d like to send a message to the news media about the accomplishments of your students at SkillsUSA state competitions. You are also welcome to revise the message to include local chapter activities such as community service. We encourage you to use the news release to notify the local media (just five outlets at a time are permitted) and your members of Congress of your students' accomplishments. Please keep in mind this is a template only. You should personalize it and use only the parts of the template that work for you.
We look forward to reading about your students in the news!
