CTE:  A Chat with Future Me

NOCTI’s 2023 video contest theme is “CTE: A Chat with Future Me”. We are seeking creative video submissions from individual students or through a team approach.  CTE programs are well known for preparing students for workplace success by focusing on the required skills to be successful in a chosen occupation.  Students are encouraged to consider what a future CTE conversation with themselves would look like.  What would a student tell themselves five or ten years from now based on what they have learned about CTE?  Use of NOCTI logo and images of NOCTI products in the video are encouraged. See application packet for complete rules and requirements.
