CVHS Technology Education Program Named Best in State

LANCASTER, Pa., -- Conestoga Valley High School was awarded the Program Excellence Award at the STEMathon conference at the Lancaster-Lebanon IU-13 on Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Presented by the International Technology & Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) and the Technology & Engineering Education Association of Pennsylvania (TEEAP), the Program Excellence Award is one of the highest honors given to Technology and Engineering Education programs on the elementary, middle, and high school level. Those eligible for this award must be characterized as providing technology and engineering education instruction of high quality, be learner centered, and be relevant to a study of technological and literacy.

The award is presented in recognition of outstanding contributions to the technology and engineering profession. Conestoga Valley High School last won this award in 2003-2004, and the middle school last won it in 2006-2007. Only one elementary, middle and high school in the state of Pennsylvania is recognized each year by TEEAP. 

“Our goal as a district is to ensure students have the skills they need to successfully enter the workforce after graduation. Awards like this one show us that we are on the right path,” said Dr. Dave Zuilkoski. “This is quite an honor for the department, school, district, and community.”
