Each year during CTE Month (February), CACTE sponsors a CTE Showcase for Legislators to learn more about Career & Technical Education programs in Colorado. While typically held at the State Capitol in downtown Denver, in 2021 the Showcase is virtual – no surprise!
The great thing about the 2021 Showcase being virtual? EVERYONE can easily be involved! Take a few minutes to record your “I am CTE” video clip; ask your colleagues and students to do the same, and flood social media, especially Twitter, with the clips on February 10 and 17! Go to the Advocacy Toolkit on the CACTE website – scroll down to the CTE Advocacy Lesson Plan!
