The Scioto County Career and Technical School (SCCTC) have been taking their skills to competitions to share what they have learned and how well they are doing in each of their related fields.
Business Professionals of America, Inc. (BPA) is the leading Career Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for students pursuing careers in business management, information technology, office administration, marketing and other related career fields. Our local students competed in the regional level competitions and are now advancing to the state competitions.
The students competed in various competitions. Some of the tests include an online knowledge test as well as a production test using different types of office software to complete jobs and tasks.
Students attended a Region 2 awards ceremony at Rio Grande University Jan. 17, so they could find out where they placed. The top 6 students were recognized and the top 3 students in the contests will advance to the state BPA competition March 12 in Columbus.
Several students from the Scioto County CTC will be advancing to the state Business Professionals of America competitions in Columbus, March 12. According to Tracy Stewart, Medical Office Management Instructor at SCCTC and who also serves as the SCCTC BPA local Advisor as well as the BPA Region 2 Advisor, a couple of the students placed in two events, but can only choose one contest in which they can choose to advance. The purpose of the national virtual events is to support BPA students who want to compete in a national event but are limited in travel due to budget cuts or limited support from their home school.
