February is CTE Month!
Plan now to join the 14.4 million secondary and postsecondary CTE students nationwide in celebrating Career and Technical Education (CTE) during the month of February. This year’s theme is Career and Technical Education: Preparing Students for College and Career! Schools can pick a day, a week, or the entire month to spotlight CTE programs.
CTE Month Activities:
> CTE Moment
> CTSO Events/Activities

Consider making the following activities part of your celebration:
> Decorate your school with banners and posters.
> Post electronic announcements to your school website, marquee, and bulletin boards.
> Have an open house for parents and the community.
> Make a video profiling successful alumni and where they work.
> If your school has a Facebook page make a post about the CTE Month events at your school.
> If your school has a Twitter page tweet about the CTE Month events at your school.
Send your CTE Month stories, pictures, and videos to UtahCTE@schools.utah.gov and we will feature them on UtahCTE.org.
