Focusing on this year's theme, "Inspiring Careers: Honoring History," state-winning entries from across the country were judged based on grade-level categories ranging from primary to post-secondary and out-of-school adults.

The NCDA Poster and Poetry Contest highlight the importance of life-long career development and the personal empowerment of all people through the arts.

This year's competition attracted more than 10,000 entries state-wide, which demonstrates the extremely high level of career awareness activity in South Carolina. Over the past five years, South Carolina has produced more than seventy national winners.
