7:30 am - 2:30 pm
It was recently brought to the attention of the educational community that many students lose interest in learning by the end of elementary school!
To help foster a renewed interest in learning, the Milton Area School District would like to give their students a greater awareness of the careers that may be available to them if they stay focused in school.
From 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, a Spring Career Awareness Fair will be held at the Baugher Elementary school in Milton. Please, consider participating in this effort to light a spark in area youth. It takes a healthy partnership between Business & Education to empower the workforce of the future.
The goal is to have as many different occupations represented at the fair as possible, including post-secondary and military. Representatives from the various industries will be asked to briefly talk about their profession with the students as they progress through the fair. They should not go into a lot of detail about the demand, education and benefits, but focus on what they do and why they are passionate about their jobs. If is more than one representative for a given career, you may asked to focus on a specific aspect of your job so the students don’t hear the same story repeatedly.
In addition to the fair, the goal is to provide a “Touch a Truck” component. In the parking lot, we would like to have several vehicles that would be used in an occupation. It would be great to see farm tractors, fire trucks, well drillers, utility trucks, etc… This will certainly capture the attention of the young students. Listed below are the objectives of the Spring Career Awareness fair.
1. Have vendors provide an overview of the career, including what they do one a day-to-day basis (it terms an elementary student will understand).
2. Demonstrate the use of any career-related machinery or technology.
3. Talk about why it is a great job and why the business owner/employee is passionate about it.
4. If possible, provide any information and/or take away materials from the vendor.
