This publication describes the 12 winning programs and the 9 semifinalists of the 1995 U.S. Secretary of Education's Awards for Outstanding Vocational-Technical Education Programs. The awards program was established in 1981 to recognize excellence in local school-to-work and vocational-technical education programs, services, and activities that carry on the purposes of the Carl D.

The following 12 winning programs are profiled: Mechanical Engineering Technology Program (Springfield, Massachusetts); Telecommunications Youth Transitions Program (Toms River, New Jersey); Automotive Technology Program (Leesport, Pennsylvania); Swansea High Tech Prep Initiative (Swansea, South Carolina); Health Sciences and Medicine Platform (Flint, Michigan); Agricultural Education/Agriscience Program (Altus, Oklahoma); South Texas High School for Health Professions (Mercedes, Texas); General Health Occupations Education (Council Bluffs, Iowa); Career/Academic Plan (Loveland, Colorado); Serendipity/Diablo Valley College Tech Prep Program in Food Service and Hospitality (Concord, California); Farrington Health Academy (Honolulu, Hawaii); and OPTIONS Teen Parenting Program (Fairbanks, Alaska). The nine semifinalist programs are as follows: Biomanufacturing Technology (Lexington, Massachusetts); Partners in Automotive Collision Technology (Lincoln, Rhode Island); Tech Prep (New York, New York); Hotel/Restaurant Management--Chef Apprentice Program (Arnold, Maryland); A Model Business/Education Partnership (Sanford, Florida); Youth Apprenticeship Program (Rockford, Illinois); Construction Trades/Apprenticeship (Secondary) (Rolla, Missouri); Marketing Education Program (Fargo, North Dakota); and Bethel's Building Bridges (Spanaway, Washington).
