WTCS Student Ambassador Award
Wisconsin Technical College System State Ambassador Award
“Recognizing outstanding student achievement in vocational-technical education.”
What is the WTCS State Ambassador Award?
The WTCS Ambassador Award is a statewide program with the mission of recognizing and rewarding outstanding students in the Wisconsin Technical College System. The program aims to develop a greater public awareness and appreciation for the high-quality system of technical education, which contributes to both the state's economy and its citizens by providing occupational education.
Who can receive this award?
This award is given to a student ambassador who possesses qualities that go beyond good grades, such as community involvement, leadership qualities in and out of the classroom, and a true commitment to higher education in the Wisconsin Technical College System.
How is the winner chosen?
The WTCS State Ambassador for Mid-State is chosen from the group of current Student Representatives working for the College. A committee will evaluate the commitment, dedication, and work each student has done and select three to move on to an interview. One winner will be chosen to represent Mid-State at the state conference.
What are the benefits to the winner?
The ambassador is then recognized at the statewide student ambassador conference in Wisconsin Dells. At this all-expense-paid conference the student receives valuable leadership training, speaks at the State Ambassador Dinner, and receives an exclusive memento. The Mid-State Foundation also awards the College-Wide Ambassador with a $200 scholarship. Additionally, they will spend the next year as a spokesperson for the Wisconsin Technical College System and Mid-State.
