Celebrate today, Own tomorrow!

CTE Month is a public awareness national campaign held each February to celebrate Career and Technical Education (CTE) and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs and students  across the country. Last year, we celebrated 100 years of career and technical education across the country.

This February presents another opportunity to showcase students and programs across Minnesota high schools and the community and technical colleges of Minnesota State that are doing tremendously great things to prepare young people and adults to enter the workforce with confidence. We invite you to take time this month to discover its changing landscape.
