Do you think you have one of the best Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs of study in the nation? Apply for the 2018 Excellence in Action award to showcase the amazing work of your students, instructors and faculty at the national level.

In its 5th year, this award honors programs across the 16 Career Clusters that 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.

Not only will your program be featured in the media and at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., in the spring, but you’ll also be contributing to a positive image of CTE programs. It’s critical to highlight exemplary programs of study to let policymakers, employers and education leaders know that CTE really is for all students, and prepares them for a lifetime of college and career success.

Applications are open to secondary and postsecondary schools/institutions. The deadline to apply is Nov. 15.
