Ohio's 2019 CTE Presidential Scholar Semi-Finalists
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative, and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Each year, up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students. Five Ohio CTE students are selected by the ODE State Superintendent as semi-finalists for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program CTE category, and 20 finalists will be honored nationwide next Spring for their achievements and accomplishments in career-tech education. Ohio ACTE, in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Education Office of CTE, is seeking Ohio’s brightest CTE seniors in the Class of 2019 for national recognition.
