ALEXANDRIA, VA-The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) today announced that Emily Pilloton, founder and executive director of Project H, will be a keynote speaker at the Saturday session of CareerTech VISION 2014, to be held November 19-22 in Nashville, TN.

Project H (Humanity, Habitats, Health and Happiness) is a California-based organization that connects young people with design and building programs that spur their creativity and appreciation for hands-on engagement. Founded in 2008, Project H has already provided more than 400 young people with a unique opportunity to design and create public works, including playgrounds, open-air farmers markets and bus shelters in at-risk communities. It strives to tap into the passion that all youth have for building and creating - including young women and minorities.

"I am thrilled that Emily will be joining us to share her story and insights with ACTE and its members at VISION this year," said ACTE Executive Director LeAnn Wilson. "Project H's efforts to bring project-based learning and CTE skills to young people aligns perfectly with the values and mission that ACTE members hold, and we are fortunate to be able to host such an esteemed and dynamic speaker at this event."

ACTE's CareerTech VISION 2014 will take place at the grand Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee, and feature hundreds of professional development sessions packed with education and inspiration, networking opportunities with 4,000+ CTE peers and professionals, a massive expo showcasing 200+ ed tech products and services, and much more. As the early bird registration deadline of July 7 is rapidly approaching, ACTE members and the CTE community at large are encouraged to take advantage of the most affordable way to hear Emily's inspirational message.
