CTE Who? CTE What? #CTEMonth Silly!
“Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow!” is their motto, and bringing public awareness to celebrate Career and Technical Education and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country is their game.
#CTEMonth, which takes place in February, is a time when not only the hard work of high school and collegiate DECA is recognized, but also when you get to share your love for the organization a any other CTSO’s that have changed your life.
Getting involved in #CTEMonth is easy when it comes to Collegiate DECA! By holding either a school or site visit to highlight the work of your Collegiate DECA chapter, or even using your social media to bring awareness to the cool activities you have planned throughout the month; your involvement in #CTEMonth is as easy as sending one tweet.
However, it goes even beyond a simply tweet, as we challenge you to engage with your local policymakers such as your mayor, council members, governor, state legislatures and Congress, to inform them about the value of Career & Technical Education.
This, along with the opportunity for you to work with local business and industry leaders to illustrate the value of CTE, will not only bring awareness to #CTEMonth, but also allows you to build those connections and relationships, in order to better your chapter in the future.
So join me and the thousands of others around the world, in telling Cupid that Valentine’s Days isn’t the only thing that happens in February, and show your love for DECA by engaging in #CTEMonth.
