Call for Proposals 2016 Annual CTE Works! Summit

The CTE Works! Summit: Creating Pathways to Success

The CTE WORKS! summit is a ONE DAY conference held on November 16th and sponsored jointly by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and Minnesota Department of Education.

The Summit has continued to grow over the years into the premiere conference connecting the career and technical education community in the Upper Midwest. Participants and presenters alike come from high school, colleges and universities, workforce, local business and industry partners, and our local communities to convene once a year and share best practices for helping every student meet community and workforce needs.

This year’s Summit includes diversity and inclusion initiatives and experiential learning opportunities that encourage all Minnesotans to explore and prepare for career pathways.

This annual Summit is an excellent venue for established and emerging state and regional leaders to share their knowledge with Career & Technical Education (CTE) educators, administrators, advisors and workforce partners. New professionals and graduate students in education, student services and in CTE programs are encouraged to submit a proposal.
