Member awards recognize excellence and dedication within the field of Career and Technical Education members. Recipients of these awards are exceptional individuals who have contributed to the success of the quality of their work and their involvement in the CTE community. Candidates and winners are three levels: state, regional, and national (four levels if starting as a section winner). Beginning in 2017, the Member Awards program will be ACTE's High Quality CTE Framework. New nominations will follow updated guidelines.


Since 1976, the Washington ACTE Member Awards have promoted excellence in Career and Technical Education.  Award winners serve as inspirational leaders to Washington ACTE: They embody the core values of serving their students and being committed to CTE. All of the Member Awards are presented at the Washington ACTE Summer Conference.  Please join Washington ACTE at our next annual conference celebrating career and technical educators who make a difference in students' lives every day!  Click here to see last year's Washington ACTE Award winners!  To view other past winners, please visit our winner archive.
