CTAT/ACTE Excellence Awards
The CTAT/ACTE Excellence Awards promote excellence in career and technical education. CTAT/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 ACTE: they embody the core values of serving their students and being committed to CTE.
State Excellence Awards are presented annually at the CTAT Awards Banquet in conjunction with CTAT's Summer Conference. Please join CTAT and more than 100 banquet attendees at this event celebrating career and technical educators who make a difference in students' lives every day. Winners advance to represent Texas in the Region IV ACTE awards program. Region IV winners advance to the national ACTE award program level.
