toolbox Acts of Selfless Service Often Need to Be Shared S killsUSA’s National Week of Service is May 3-9, and we want to know about your projects! That’s why SkillsUSA is offering a special gift to all chapters who send us a report on their community service activities during this annual event commemorating SkillsUSA’s founding. While planning your project, remember to appoint photographers to chronicle the event. When it’s completed, come together as a class and discuss what you accomplished. Why did you choose this project? What were the highlights? How many were involved? How were your tech-nical skills put to use? Assign a student (or your advisor) to take notes during the discussion and write up the final report (just a few paragraphs). Then, e-mail it by May 31 to and look for your gift to follow soon after. Oh, and don’t forget the photos! For more, visit: service.shtml . • Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little. — e dmund B urke Find the photo, win a prize No, the picture on the left isn’t abstract art.
