On Tuesday, April 29, 2014, the 28th Annual Career and Technical Education (CTE) Scholarships and Tuition Awards Banquet took place at Salt Lake Community College. This banquet is a longstanding tradition used to honor CTE students throughout the state who have been selected to receive a scholarship and tuition award from a postsecondary institution in Utah.
Each award recipient was one of 157 applicants who applied for a CTE Scholarship and Tuition Award. At the banquet, 96 scholarships were awarded to high school CTE seniors for up to one year’s tuition at a postsecondary institution.
Six blogs have been posted on www.UtahCTE.org highlighting students who received a CTE Scholarship and Tuition Award.
