3-2-1... Careers in Action

Calling all students and teachers! It is your time to shine! 

Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas in partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission hosted the inaugural Careers in Action video contest for schools in our 19-county region during fall of 2017. Middle (6th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade) students, with the sponsorship of a teacher from their school, were invited to create videos highlighting Texas's 16 career clusters. Prize money totaling over $17,000 was awarded to teachers for their classrooms!!
