ACTE E-Advocate Recognition

A A A

ACTE's public policy department is recognizing its most active CTE Action Center e-advocates! Beginning on July 1, 2014, the top five action takers during each of the eligibility periods listed below will be recognized as leaders in CTE advocacy on the ACTE website and in ACTE publications.

Eligibility:

Any ACTE member who has taken a minimum of 10 actions to advocate for CTE to federal policymakers is qualified for recognition. Actions must be taken through the CTE Action Center on ACTE's website. Of those individuals who have taken the minimum number of qualifying actions, the top five most active will be recognized.

Actions considered eligible for recognition must be taken during one of two eligibility periods:
  • Summer recognition: January 1 through June 30
  • Winter recognition: July 1 through December 31

Qualifying Actions:

The top five "e-advocates" will be determined solely on the number of actions taken through the CTE Action Center.

Qualifying actions to be considered include:
  • E-mails
  • Letters
  • Faxes
  • Petitions
  • Phone calls

Phone calls will only be counted if logged through the CTE Action center as part of an organized campaign or individually.

ACTE Public Policy staff will utilize only reports taken from the CTE Action Center administrative site to determine the top five action takers. Data reports generated will be reviewed by ACTE Public Policy staff for accuracy.

Members who have built personal relationships with Members of Congress and contact staff in those offices directly, outside of our CTE Action Center, may instead submit themselves for the "Advocate of the Year Award."

Additional Information:

  • In the case of a multi-way tie for a spot in the top five, all individuals will be recognized.
  • Recognition of winners will be determined by reports drawn from the CTE Action Center administrative page and verified by the ACTE Public Policy staff following the end of the eligibility period.
  • The top action takers will be recognized in January and July for actions taken in the previous eligibility period.
  • Winners will be recognized on the ACTE website through the CTE Policy Watch Blog and may be recognized in ACTE's Techniques magazine based on its publishing dates.
  • All winners will receive notice prior to being recognized in Techniques or on the website and may decline recognition.
    • In the case that an action taker declines recognition, the next-most-active individual will be recognized if a fifth spot must be filled.

Social Media Advocacy

Sharing your thoughts with your Senators or Representative on a routine basis will keep CTE in the front of their minds. By using advocacy as a tool, we can influence Congress to continue and improve successful programs like Perkins, ESEA and the Workforce Investment Act. Social media advocacy is one of the quickest and simplest ways to spread the CTE message to your Members of Congress. You can share about the benefits of your CTE program, activities your students are involved in, or your thoughts on key policy issues. You can even post pictures to illustrate your points.
