View our Sponsorship Levels


Educate the next generation. Our young people need your help. Many students are unaware of the great careers in your field. High school students need to see the relevance of their education, learn about promising career paths and better understand the skills they need to be successful in the workplace.

Build your brand. About 7,000 students and educators from 75+ high schools attended our last Expo, as did 200 exhibitors - including many of your potential business partners, clients and competitors. As an Expo sponsor, you create tremendous community goodwill and increase visibility.

Grow your pipeline. Many employers face a high number of employee retirements in the coming years, representing a loss of skills and experience. The Expo is a chance to connect with your future workforce.

Help high schools year-round. Sponsoring the Expo pays dividends for students throughout the school year. A portion of your Expo sponsorship goes toward providing in-depth career-learning opportunities for students, helping them make informed decisions about their next steps after graduation.
