Calling all students and teachers! It is your time to shine...prizes are on the line!

Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas hosted the 2021 Careers in Action student video contest for schools in our 19-county region and announced winners live during the Virtual Red Carpet Premiere on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. Middle school (6th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade) students, with the sponsorship of a teacher from their school, created videos highlighting in-demand careers! Prizes were awarded to winning teachers for the best video within each of the five industry categories and divisions. Entries were broken up by Middle School and High School and Small School (1A/2A) and Large School (3A/4A/5A/6A) classification. All videos were also eligible for the Grand Prize, which was won by Eula High School students under the sponsorship of teacher Madison Galle. 

Winners received an awesome classroom prize package of their choosing:
