CTE At The Washington County Fair
Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Want to learn how to make a mezze platter from a well known chef? How about learning the latest hair braiding trends, seeing Mig welding, or checking out how to operate a mini-excavator? These are just a few of the demonstrations you can attend when WSWHE BOCES highlights its Career and Technical Education (CTE) program at the Washington County Fair August 20-26. Students and instructors will be making daily career demonstrations. Culinary Arts, Welding, Cosmetology, and Environmental Conservation and Forestry programs are just a few of the 24 CTE programs visitors can learn about.
As the fair's mission is to educate the public about agriculture in a fun, family friendly manner, it is the perfect venue to bring CTE programs directly to the community and show prospective students and their parents what CTE is all about. During a time when many businesses have trouble finding skilled workers to fill jobs, CTE provides students with an opportunity to have a successful career.
Come visit the CTE interactive display, across from the Racing Pigs in the Carnival Area, starting Monday August 20 at 5pm and continuing for the duration of the fair from 10am to 10pm each day. Friday, August 24 will be CTE Day at the Fair, with multiple demonstrations on that day. We’ll have exciting promotional giveaways too!
