On Friday, April 1st CentraCare-Long Prairie and Long Prairie/Grey Eagle High School came together with Marnita’s Table to host a Career Fair for high school students and community members interested in a new or future career. Community members, educators, families, and representatives from many different careers came to make new connections and share knowledge about new careers.
Throughout the evening, those looking to do more research on careers received handed a passport that categorized all careers using colors. The different categories were along the lines of STEM, Arts, Human Services, Business/Management, and Agriculture.
Each student or community member interested in these categories were encouraged to not only grab related materials, but to make a connection with someone interested in the same field/s. A resource wall was available for students seeking materials about every career represented at the event.
The night came to close with Circle Share-in, laughs and hugs, and raffle prizes for students who completed their passports.
