Home Depot and SkillsUSA are partnering to give a total of $30,000 in scholarships to six high school seniors entering the skilled trades industry for National Signing Day

As the construction industry faces a continuing shortage of skilled labor, industry organizations and companies are investing in the next generation of trades workers.

On May 4, six high school seniors entering the skilled trades industry will receive scholarships totaling $30,000, courtesy of a partnership between The Home Depot Foundation and SkillsUSA.

The scholarships, focused on training the next generation of skilled tradespeople, will help cover each student’s trade school tuition, according to a news release.

The six students will be selected and announced on National Signing Day, a nationwide event for celebrating graduating high school seniors.

The Home Depot and manufacturer Klein Tools will congratulate students in the Southeast by delivering gear and pizza along with a virtual appearance from NFL quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and his father, Tony.
