ACTE Excellence Awards Gala

Awards Celebration, Free to All Registered Virtual VISION Attendees.

Any reason to get dressed up is a good one — even in your own fancy virtual space! The ACTE Awards celebration, with all its glitz and glam, will recognize those individuals and organizations, who have made extraordinary contributions to CTE.

The ACTE Excellence Awards recognize those individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to CTE, programs that exemplify the highest standards and organizations that have conducted activities to promote and expand CTE programs. Award winners serve as inspirational leaders to ACTE: they embody the core values of serving their students and being committed to CTE. All ACTE Excellence Awards are presented at the ACTE Awards Gala in conjunction with ACTE’s CareerTech VISION.
