District of Columbia ACTE Awards


The District of Columbia awards program seeks to promote excellence in career and technical education (CTE) by recognizing members who have made extraordinary contributions within the discipline through leadership, service, programs that exemplify the highest standards, and activities conducted to promote and expand CTE. The District of Columbia Association for Career and Technical Education (DC ACTE) administers the ACTE Excellence Awards. Association winners are recognized at the state level and are then eligible to move forward for consideration at the Region I level.
