National Career Development Association 49th Annual Poetry and Poster Contest

The National Career Development Association is having their 49th annual Poetry and Poster contest and your students are invited to participate. This creative opportunity is a great way for your students to think about their future career plans as well as be creative and earn regional, state and national recognition.

The theme for the contest is "Celebrating First Jobs Through Encore Careers."  The contest is an opportunity to highlight career development as a lifelong process and finding purpose in your career. Specifically, how does your career connect you to life-long career development?  The word “encore” in the theme is the life-long process one takes in order to find purpose in their job and/or career.  For elementary level students it means to write or draw what your dream job would be.

 The submission deadline is November 14, 2014. ALL entries MUST be received by this date in order to be judged and be accompanied by the "OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM." Click here for entry form.
