2013 NPS: Climbing the Hill

Today, the attendees of the 2013 National Policy Seminar climbed the Hill to meet with legislators and advocate for CTE!

One of the day's highlights was a panel session at the Capital Visitors Center with key education policy staff from both sides of the aisle, who shared their perspectives on what to expect from the new Congress, followed by the presentation of the Policymaker of the Year award to Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) and Rep. Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-chairs of the Congressional CTE Caucus.

Following that, many NPS attendees met with state and district policymakers to tell the stories and share the data that illustrate CTE's effectiveness at engaging and educating students and meeting workforce needs. We know you made an impression with legislators such as Missouri Senator Roy Blunt:
