Invitation to Participate

2014 Academy Expo   

The 2014 Academy Expo is here! 

The Alignment Rockford Career Awareness Committee invites your organization to host a booth at the 2014 Academy Expo at the BMO Harris Bank Center on Tuesday, Sept. 16, from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.  

2,000 9th grade students from Rockford Public Schools and 750 9th grade students from Belvidere School District will learn about careers from you, our community’s business, civic, education, and agency experts.

RPS students will use the information to select a high school academy pathway in January 2015.  Belvidere students will use the event to explore regional career opportunities in Winnebago and Boone Counties.
