Career and Technical Education Month

Event Dates and Times

2/1/2018 - 2/28/2018
Career and Technical Education Month®, or CTE Month®, is a public awareness campaign taking place each February to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.

One way we are celebrating CTE month in Marquette and Alger Counties this February is by recognizing teachers, students, individuals and community organizations who enhance CTE by contributing to the improvement, promotion, development, quality and progress of CTE. The Marquette Alger CTE committee, whose main focus is helping young people make the best possible career decisions, is sponsoring these awards. In addition to the aforementioned categories, students presenting the best showcase display and poster design at their schools will also be recognized.

Watch and listen for more information and contests throughout the month, and beyond, on Facebook, Twitter and other media outlets.
