Calling all students and teachers! It is your time to shine...prizes are on the line!

Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas is hosting the 2021 Careers in Action student video contest for schools in our 19-county region! Middle school (6th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade) students, with the sponsorship of a teacher from their school, are invited to create videos highlighting an in-demand career! Prizes will be awarded to winning teachers. 

Prizes will be awarded for the best video within each of the five industry categories and divisions. All videos will also be eligible for the Grand Prize. Entries will be broken up by Middle School and High School and Small School (1A/2A/3A) and Large School (4A/5A/6A) classification. 

Winners receive one of these awesome classroom prize packages:
