TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Area high school seniors have been recognized as top Kansas Career and Technical Education Scholars.

The Kansas Department of Education says 50 high school seniors have been named as 2021 Kansas Career and Technical Education (CTE) Scholars. It said the program is an opportunity to recognize well-rounded outstanding CTE students that are in their final year of high school. It said this is the initiative’s fourth year.

According to KSDE, students are required to be a high school senior and meet the following criteria to be chosen as a scholar:
