Julie Prascsak, a senior at the 2012 NBR Communications High School (Wall, NJ), won a top prize in the Association for Career and Technical Education’s (ACTE) 2012 CTE Month national poster design competition to illustrate this year’s theme, Career and Technical Education Works!
CTE Month honors America’s long tradition of career and technical education to prepare students for a wide range of careers, from agriculture and architecture to law, marketing, and transportation. More than 12 million students are enrolled in CTE programs.
Prascsak’s poster, the first-place winner in the secondary school division, is being displayed in schools around the country during the celebration of CTE Month.
A major in Visual Communications, Prascsak was inspired by blueprints to link the benefits of career and technical education with the goals of the annual month-long celebration.
“The whole school is extremely proud of Julie and this very creative interpretation of the CTE month theme,” said CHS Principal James Gleason. “She is a very talented young artist and she clearly captured the attention of the judges in this national competition.”
Prascsak plans a career as an English teacher and free-lance graphic designer. She will attend the College of New Jersey this fall.
