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 2022 the Showcase is virtual, which means advocating for CTE all month-long!
The great thing about the 2022 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 9 and 16! Go to the Advocacy Toolkit on the CACTE website – scroll down to the CTE Advocacy Lesson Plan!
