Costello Family Community Service Awards
SkillsUSA Massachusetts Community Service activities are one of the most important types of programs that SkillsUSA members can participate in. The activities enable members to become active participants in their communities, thus allowing students to become aware of community concerns and participate in the solutions.
Community involvement by SkillsUSA Chapters is at the root of what SkillsUSA is all about. The SkillsUSA Pledge states “to base my expectations upon the solid foundation of service.” This service also enables the community to become aware of the outstanding work being done by students.
Individual Chapter Projects & the Costello Family Community Service Awards
Each individual chapter is encouraged to conduct a community service project geared to the individual needs of their area. All SkillsUSA chapters will be asked to participate.
SkillsUSA Massachusetts is continuing our recognition initiative. All SkillsUSA chapters are being asked to compile a report of any and all chapter community service projects, to be presented at the State Leadership and Skills Conference. Winning entries will be recognized at the conference, with the presentation of the Costello Family Community Service Awards. These awards are given in honor of the community service activities of Meg Costello, chapter advisor at Shawsheen Valley Tech, and her family in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
