When most school programs are winding down for the year, many Career and Technical (CTE) courses are exploding with student-designed and fabricated projects for competition in the annual Utah Valley CTE Expo hosted by Nebo CTE held Wednesday, May 19, 2022, at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds. It all gets underway tonight as participants from all over Utah start checking in for the big day on Thursday.
This year the theme for CTE teachers district-wide has been I.HAD.FUN. Fun in teaching, FUN in the schools, FUN in being with students and co-workers, and FUN in Nebo. CTE programs and courses are a way to help students find out what they are interested in. By taking CTE courses, students get a better idea of what field of study or work they would like to proceed in whether it be college or trade. CTE offers internships that a student can participate in after they have taken courses in that field. Opportunities in CTE are FUN!
