CTE Student Video Contest

Announcing the first annual CTE Student Video Contest!

Students can win prizes for submitting creative videos about their CTE program of study.

Here is a flyer with all the details 

Students may work in teams or individually – all students working in a group must submit a media waiver, and will split prizes awarded. Some students have used iMovie on an iPad to create a “movie trailer” style video showcasing their CTE program. We look forward to awarding prizes for the best video from each school, and an over all winner for the district!

Check out this example from one of our first submissions > This is from Dr. Barbara Leonard’s Engineering students at West Ashley High School:

Wando Culinary Arts Volunteers at March of Dimes Auction

Oct 2, 2014 – The Charleston Marriott downtown was the host location again this year for the Charleston Signature Chefs Auction benefiting the March of Dimes.

Among the many volunteers that helped ensure the success of this event was Bill Twaler, and his talented culinary arts students from Wando High School. They arrived early and stayed late, and got the chance to work side by side with Charleston’s top chefs!

Chef Twaler said, “It was a terrific experiential learning opportunity, and a nice resume builder for each of the students. This work-based learning opportunity will pay dividends far in to the future for these students.”  Chef Twaler also expressed his thanks to everyone that made their inclusion possible, especially for such a worthy cause.
