100 High School Students America Needs to Know Aboutâ„¢

Deadline has been extended until January 31, 2020!

Workforce Career Readiness™ is celebrating "100 High Schoolers" across the United States. We are looking for high school students who are on their way to taking the world by storm! 

Do you know a student leader or activist that is making a difference? How about a student who is working on the next big thing such as an app or a startup? Maybe a student who started their own business?

How about a student who is excelling in career technical education or volunteering their time afterschool or weekends? Do you know a student who writes screen plays or authored a book, produced a film or hosts a radio show, or a student that “beat the odds” under difficult circumstances?

If you know a student that you'd like to nominate, let us know by filling out our nomination form found below and submit a photo (at least 1,000 pixels on the longest side) of the student along with a paragraph letting us know why he or she is a student America needs to know about.

Once chosen, 100 students will be featured on Workforce Career Readiness™ website and social media outlets that will be viewed by millions of readers throughout the country.

WINNERS will receive a frame certificate, Workforce Career Readiness™ swag bag filled with goodies, and most of all bragging rights.


Who Can Apply

The contest is open to United States high school students attending public, private, parochial, charter, or home schools in grades 9-12 who are legal residents of any U.S. state and the District of Columbia.


The deadline is January 10, 2020 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time.

Winners will be announced March 2020!

We look forward to highlighting these amazing students!
