The National Association of Supervisors of Business Education (NASBE) awards a $1000 scholarship each year to a middle or high school business/marketing teacher to attend either the ACTE or NBEA conference.  The scholarship is intended to promote the growth of educational leaders in business and marketing education in career technical middle and high school programs.  The money is intended for travel to attend your choice of either the ACTE or the NBEA national conference this  year.  When you attend the conference, you will be asked to attend the NASBE meeting and/or social.

  1. Has never attended an ACTE or NBEA national conference
  2. Is currently employed as a middle or high school career technical (PTE) business or marketing teacher
