A Season of CTSO Leadership!

Each fall Minnesota Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) hold leadership conferences. The conferences provide “hands-on” opportunities for students to develop team building, communication, and leadership skills. This year was no exception, in all there were 7 conferences held throughout the state preparing CTSO members for the year to come!

DECA State Officer Candidates

Many of the conferences also serve to elect state officers for the upcoming year. This select group of students will work closely with the CTSO state office and serve their organization throughout the upcoming year.

Happy Holidays from the Mn Foundation for Student Organizations

The Minnesota Foundation for Student Organizations would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a joyous holiday season and remind everyone to be kind to one another. The division in our country has been felt everywhere by everyone; this includes our schools and our students. Minnesota's CTSOs strive to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment recognizing principles of fairness, equity, and social justice in relation to all identities represented among our diverse membership. We acknowledge the talents, skills, and perspectives of each individual and foster a culture of belonging, innovation, and mutual respect.
