President’s Volunteer Service Award

SkillsUSA members from 13 states have been recognized for their outstanding community service this year. SkillsUSA, as an official certifying organization for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA), recognized the members for individual or team service efforts. PVSA is a national honor issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation on behalf of the President of the United States. The award recognizes the best in the American spirit and encourages all Americans to improve their communities through volunteer service and civic participation. Gold, silver and bronze awards are based on the number of documented volunteer hours served over 12 consecutive months. Recipients receive a lapel pin, personalized certificate of achievement, and a congratulatory letter from the president. A total of 18,083 service hours were performed by the SkillsUSA members who qualified to receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award in 2020.
