ACTE Excellence Awards
Congratulations to the 2015 Excellence Award winners! Watch our interviews with them here.
The ACTE Excellence Awards promote excellence in career and
technical education. Since 1954, ACTE has recognized 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. Click here to view the ACTE award winner archive.
