The annual campaign celebrates achievement and creates awareness about the goal of college and career readiness for all.

The campaign identifies exemplars in each of four categories—students, high schools, postsecondary institutions and employers—for each participating state. Tallahassee Community College was Florida’s only postsecondary exemplar.

Tallahassee Community College and the exemplars from other states will be considered for ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign national semifinalist status. Finally, a committee composed of national education and workforce leaders will choose one semifinalist per category to make up four national exemplars. These national exemplars, along with all state exemplars, will be honored at an event in late fall 2017 in Iowa City.
