The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) is pleased to announce the creation of the national Career Guidance Award to recognize school counselors/career development professionals who are currently making significant contributions in career and technical education (CTE) programs in their communities and/or states.
This national award, sponsored by Kuder, Inc., is designed to highlight those school professionals who are responsible for guiding students in their educational and career pursuits. This Award will follow the criteria and outline of ACTE’s Excellence Member Awards, meaning potential national winners must first compete at the state and Regional levels.
The first national Career Guidance Award was presented at the 2012 ACTE Annual Convention and Career Tech Expo, November 29 – December 2, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia.
