ABOUT

Career Development Events are one of the most exciting ways students can get involved in our program. These events allow students to apply critical thinking skills during a career-based competition. 
Each contest requires a team of four members and they must work together to prepare. At the end competition season, the team will attend a state finals contest where they will compete for the state champion title.
