CTE (Career and Technical Education) Month is a public awareness campaign that takes place each year in February.  It is a great opportunity to celebrate Career and Technical Education and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across North Dakota and the nation!

CTE Month gives you the chance to inform others of the innovation and excellence that exists within your local CTE programs and raise awareness of the crucial role that CTE plays in readying our students for careers and our nation for economic success.
