The Maryland Career and Technical Administrators (MCTA) operates as an approved state chapter for the Association of Career and Technical Education (ACTE). Each year ACTE sponsors a national awards program for affiliated State organizations or chapters.

MCTA/Maryland ACTE is conducting a statewide search for excellence in career and technical education (CTE) to highlight outstanding educators as part of our annual awards program. We are seeking nominations from all divisions, positions and content areas for the following awards:


Deserving candidates for these awards have demonstrated their commitment to CTE through their innovation, accomplishments and contributions to the CTE community. Award recipients will then be judged, and Maryland ACTE award winners will have their nominations forwarded on to be considered for the ACTE Region I Awards.

Learn more about the nomination guidelines and how to submit a nomination online here. If you have any questions, please contact MCTA executive director, Michael Weglein, and Maryland Awards Committee chair, Sharon Kramer.
