Despite its enormous impact on the nation’s labor market, its direct tie to economic stability and recovery, and its proven success addressing the nation’s high school dropout issue, career technical education (CTE) remains the nation’s best-kept educational secret.
The Association for Career Technical Education (ACTE) has taken action to share that secretÂ byÂ asking friends of CTE to join ACTE as they launch a promotional campaign to promote CTE. ACTE applied for a grant to the Pepsi Refresh Project, which is giving monetary awards to deserving individuals and organizations who want to make a positive impact on their local communities. In this project, voting determines which ideas get funded. If ACTE wins, the proceeds will go directly to an image campaign aimed at benefiting all those in the CTE community. Everyone can vote daily throughout the entire month of October by visiting http://www.refresheverything.com/cteimage Â AND Texting 103403 to Pepsi (73774). For more information about the Pepsi Refresh project, visit www.refreshcte.com.
CTE friends, we encourage you to get behind this effort and show your support. We urge you to vote twice daily by text and online. Pass this message on to your colleagues and friends!
