CTSO Student Competitions

Career and Technical Student Organizations

Metro Tech takes pride in supporting these student organization activities to enhance student learning: BPA, FCCLA, HOSA, SkillsUSA, TSA

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) enhance student learning through contextual instruction, leadership and personal development, applied learning and real world application

CTSOs work as an integral component of the classroom curriculum and instruction, building upon employability and career skills and concepts through the application and engagement of students in hands-on demonstrations and real life and/or work experiences through a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. CTSO’s help guide students in developing a career path, a program of study and provide opportunities in gaining the skills and abilities needed to be successful in those careers through CTSO activities, programs and competitive events. In addition, students have opportunities to hold leadership positions at the local, state, and national level and attend leadership development conferences to network with other students as well as business and industry partners.

BPA – Business Professionals of America

The students below competed and have qualified for the BPA’s State Leadership Conference

For BPA the students only did an online test for regionals to determine if they qualify to compete for state competitions. We won’t know what they have placed until they compete at the State Leadership Conference in March.
