Good news! If you have not submitted your program of study for the Excellence in Action award, there’s still time. We’ve extended the deadline to Thursday, December 18th.  As a reminder, the Excellence in Action award will recognize and honor superior Career Technical Education (CTE) programs of study from around the nation. Selected programs of study will exemplify excellence in the implementation of the Career Clusters, and have a meaningful impact on student achievement and success.

Why should you apply? 

Receiving the Excellence in Action award means your program of study will be showcased on a national level. This includes the opportunity to present at conferences and webinars throughout the year, as well as highlighted in a monthly newsletter to members of Congress, on our website, and in our blog. It’s a chance to show the rest of the country how your school prepares students for successful and meaningful careers through high quality CTE. If you want to see examples of some stellar programs of study, take a look at last year’s winners and don’t forget to apply today!

US Innovative Education Forum Accepting Applications

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

The annual US Innovative Education Forum (IEF), hosted by Microsoft, honors innovative teachers and schools. The forum provides teachers and schools the opportunity to showcase how technology furthers education transformation by being appropriately incorporated into curricula, pedagogy, and classrooms. The work of schools and teachers engaged in CTE often is at the vanguard of innovation and are eligible to apply.

The application process does not limit to a single application per school. There are opportunities for different innovative teachers, projects, or teams. Kelly Green, Academic Program Manager with US Partners in Learning, indicated, “IEF is a great way to promote the activities the students are engaged in . . . and if selected, this is a great way to showcase the school or district.”

More information about the application and process, including a video of past winners and is available at
