About the Campaign
Each year, ACT’s College and Career Readiness Campaign celebrates college and career readiness by recognizing the work of students, schools, employers, and states in pursuing the goal of college and career readiness for all. ACT recognizes 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 2014, ACT is celebrating the college and career readiness efforts of eight states: Alabama, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.
