CTE Moment

The first annual “CTE Moment” was a huge success. Thank you to the schools across the state who participated. We are currently counting the photos and will announce the winning school the week of February 28.

If you received an error message that our mailbox was full, the problem has been corrected. So, please resubmit your photos if your email bounced back.

On Wednesday, February 23 at 10:00 a.m. UtahCTE.org asked teachers and students around the state to stop for a minute to take a picture of a CTE moment in their school. The photos we received illustrated the hands-on kind of learning that is happening in CTE classrooms at schools throughout Utah! We are in the process of creating a slideshow using the best photos to post on UtahCTE.org.

Here are the specifics of what happened in both jr highs and high schools on Wednesday, February 23:

  • At exactly 10:00 AM, an announcement was made (over the school-wide intercom, or by a teacher in the classroom), that it was time for the “Utah CTE Moment.” 
  • Everyone – staff and students – quickly found a “CTE-related” image and used their camera (even the one on their phone) to snap a photo. As a result, we received photos that illustrate fabulous “hands-on” CTE instruction, engaged students, projects that are in process or complete, etc.  
  • All the photos were emailed to UtahCTE@schools.utah.gov, under the subject line, “CTE Moment @ [name of ] School.” 
  • The Utah secondary school that sent in the most CTE Moment photos (as a percentage of the number of students enrolled at the school) within 24 hours was our winner. (At this time, the “winner” will simply get bragging rights, but we’re working on some “extras.”)

Thank you for partcipating!

    One of our CTE “Moments” yesterday was a scholarship workshop given by Jason Baum, creator of Utah Scholarship Guide website. This site complements Utah Futures and gives tips, helps, and links from the students’ viewpoint. It is easy to navigate and provides hard-to-find information such as checking the AP test score needed to receive college credit at a particular school.
