The National Career Development Association & North Carolina Career Development Association is hosting the 55thAnnual Poetry & Art Contest in celebration of National Career Development Month in November. Every adult and student enrolled in public, private, and parochial schools, and colleges are eligible. During the month of November, schools from across the state hold local, school, and district wide contests to celebrate National Career Development Month.
Local winning entries in poetry, original art, and mixed media art are sent to the State Contest, hosted by the North Carolina Career Development Association. State winners move on to the National Contest. North Carolina has had many national winners in the past. We hope to have even more this year.
