About the CTE Works! Summit
This annual Summit is planned by committee members comprised of educators from Minnesota State, Minnesota Department of Education, Perkins Consortium Leaders, and the eight Minnesota State Centers of Excellence. It has continued to grow over the years into the premier conference connecting the career and technical education community in the Upper Midwest. Participants and presenters alike come from high school, colleges and universities, workforce, local business and industry partners, and our local communities to convene once a year to share best practices in their field, network, and continue their professional development.
The CTE Works! Summit and any contents of this website and related materials were developed under the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
