Advance CTE: State Leaders Connecting Learning to Work’s annual Excellence in Action award recognizes and honors superior Career Technical Education (CTE) programs of study from across the nation. Selected programs of study will exemplify excellence in the implementation of the Career Clusters, show a true progression from secondary to postsecondary education, provide meaningful work-based learning opportunities, and have a substantial and evidence-based impact on student achievement and success.
This award allows Advance CTE to lift up and highlight what high-quality and high-impact programs of study look like to policy makers, employers and education leaders to support a more positive image of CTE. Each winning program of study is featured at an awards ceremony in the spring, in an ongoing blog series, in the media and to other CTE stakeholders.
Applications for the 2018 Excellence in Action award will open in the fall. For questions email Katie Fitzgerald at email@example.com.
