CTE Recognition Night Details for Juniors & Seniors

Thursday, June 10th @ 6:30

CTE will hold its Recognition Night & National Technical Honor Society Celebration on Thursday, June 10, 2021. The ceremony will be held at the Champlain Valley Exposition beginning at 6:30pm. The ceremony will be held outdoors and will be a rain or shine event, so let’s hope the weather stays in our favor!

Gates will open at 5:30 but students need to be in their seats by 6:00.

Attendees should bring their own chairs, sunscreen, signs, etc but please leave tents, coolers and such at home. There will be a photographer on site and will upload all photos of the evening to share with students and families. As of now masks and social distancing from other groups is still required.

Students received information in their program this week along with their family (up to 6 people) tickets.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
