Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) are an important component of local career and technical education in Alaska.
Each organization provides leadership and professional development, job and career-related training, employability skills, citizenship and communication skills, and opportunities to set and achieve goals. www.ctsoalaska.org
At King Tech High School, students participate in SkillsUSA (careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations), HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America), and Educators Rising (formerly Future Educators of Alaska).
The 2020 Educators Rising Alaska Student Leadership Conference will take place in Fairbanks, Alaska on March 1-3, 2020.
Students who register in the state Portal will also have their national membership dues paid by us for access to the National Active-level membership, which allows students to participate in Educators Rising as national ambassadors or officers, join the National Honor Society, pursue scholarship opportunities, attend or compete at the state and national conference, participate in monthly discussion questions, access to the online community, and access to videos of National Board Certified Teachers.

There are several more contests/classes that have not yet committed to participating in the state conference. Check back for updates regularly.
If you are a business and looking to support our CTSOs, please consider donating to our 501C-3 school organization. On average, it costs approximately $5000 per student to participate in state and national conferences/competitions. As we don’t have any traditional sports teams, this is our school’s representation of vocational and technical skills on both the state and national levels. In the years we have been participating, we have consistently won our state competitions and regularly medaled at the national level. Please help us continue the tradition of imparting the vocational and technical skills that employers are looking for. Thank you for your consideration.
