In May, 8th and 9th graders in Clarke County schools participated in the Southwest Alabama Workforce Development Council (SAWDC) Worlds of Opportunity (WOO) Career Expo - Virtual Edition. The Career Expo was a fun, educational and interactive hands-on opportunity where students got a broad overview of jobs available in our region. Students were encouraged to visit as many "Worlds" as possible to explore and learn about various careers, employers, and educational resources. At the conclusion of the simulation, students completed a survey to be entered into a drawing for a door prize. Two students from Jackson High School and Clarke County High School were randomly selected from 6,000 students to receive a door prize.
