Are you an Outstanding Student at SUNY Broome?
Are you enrolled in a Career and Technical Education Program at SUNY Broome that is Nontraditional for Your Gender?
If so, it’s time to Ask Your Professor to nominate you for the Vanguard Award!
WHAT: The Vanguard Award is administered by the New York State Nontraditional Employment & Training (NET) Project, Center for Women in Government & Civil Society, and is sponsored by the New York State Education Department through a Carl D. Perkins grant. The award recognizes outstanding post-secondary level students who are enrolled in CTE programs that are not traditional for their gender. A nontraditional career is an occupation where one sex comprises fewer than 25% of the total employed.
WHEN: The Nomination Deadline is Nov. 21, 2019
WHY: Be recognized publically for your achievements! Vanguard award winners and their guests are invited to the Vanguard Award Celebrations and NET Conference to their honor in Albany, New York in Spring 2020. (The exact date and location will be announced later.) All travel expenses and accommodations will be covered by the NET program. All award winners will also be interviewed, with videotaped interviews to be placed on the NET website to inspire others to follow in their footsteps. The NET Program will issue a press release from UAlbany that is picked up by media outlets in the finalists and winners hometowns.
