Celebrating CTE Month!

February was national Career and Technical Education Month. Across the country educators, administrators and students celebrated how career and technical education has enriched their life and their community. Minnesota was no exception!

DECA State Officer Candidates

One of the ways the MFSO celebrated was through our much anticipated event: CTSO (career and Technical Student Organization) Day at the Capitol. CTSO Day at the Capitol provides the student leaders of the CTSOs an opportunity to engage their state Representatives and Senators in discussions about the impact career and technical education and student organizations have impacted their lives.

The students had an opportunity to meet each other prior to the event and learn how the different career and technical student organizations serve students and enrich their career areas. The students also learned about the political process and how they can impact it.

With more than 25 student leaders participating, all of Minnesota's CTSOs were represented. The students met with more than 21 Senators and Representatives throughout the day; attended committee meetings and one of our students was even able to testify at a committee meeting!
