Preparing individuals for college and career success is no small task—and it’s never been more important. This is why ACT is recognizing individuals and organizations whose efforts to advance college and career readiness are having a positive impact on their communities.
Each year, ACT’s College and Career Readiness Campaign will celebrate achievement and create awareness around the goal of college and career readiness for all. ACT will recognize exemplary efforts in four categories across the education and workforce continuum:
- Student Readiness Award (student)
- College and Career Transition Award (high school)
- Career Preparedness Award (community college)
- Workplace Success Award (employer)
Honorees receive awards from ACT—including college scholarships for Student Readiness Award recipients—and participate in national and state campaign events. In 2013, ACT is celebrating the college and career readiness efforts of six states: Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.
