Two Categories of Awards

Awards nominations may be submitted by CACTE members in good standing.

The following awards are eligible for CACTE, Region V and ACTE  level awards and must be submitted online by June 11 at Colorado ACTE Awards portal.

It’s a bit confusing, but you will be completing the appropriate application labeled 2020!  Yes, it really is for the 2018 CACTE Excellence Awards.  Colorado winners will then go on to the Region V selection committee for 2019.  If the Region V winner is selected as the ACTE winner, that award is presented at the 2019 ACTE Vision conference as the 2020 winner.  Really, that’s how it works!
