AwardS Program

Since 1976, the Washington ACTE Excellence Awards have promoted excellence in Career and Technical Education.  Washington ACTE recognizes those individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to CTE, programs that exemplify the highest standards, and organizations that have conducted activities to promote and expand CTE programs.  Award winners serve as inspirational leaders to Washington ACTE: They embody the core values of serving their students and being committed to CTE. All of the Member Awards are presented at the Washington ACTE Summer Conference.  Please join Washington ACTE at our next annual conference celebrating career and technical educators who make a difference in students' lives every day!  Click here to see last year's Washington ACTE Award winners!  To view other past winners, please visit our winner archive.
