DACCTE Awards



Each year the Delaware Advisory Council on Career and Technical Education (DACCTE) recognizes groups and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Career and Technical Education (CTE) by presenting awards in three categories which include: a business, agency, labor union or trade association; an individual from the private or public sector and 12th grade CTE student(s). The Awards Nomination materials are mailed in early February and nominations must be submitted in early March.

All candidates are nominated by leaders from business, industry and education and are honored for their significant and positive support and efforts on behalf of CTE. The Council Awards Selection Committee is composed of members from DACCTE and meets in early May to review the nominations and select the Award winners. The recipients are honored at the Council’s Awards Ceremony held in Dover in early June.
