Polk College & Career Fair Scheduled for March 10

Polk College & Career Fair Scheduled for March 10


The Polk County District College Fair is back! Actually, make that the College AND Career Fair.

This year’s event — our first in-person fair since 2019 — will include employers for the first time. Representatives from more than 60 colleges and business are expected to attend.

“We want to increase access and opportunities for students and parents by expanding the fair to include employers,” said Monique Byrd, PCPS’ college and career specialist. “We hope that families will take advantage of the opportunity to meet with representatives in person, and receive the information and resources they need to start thinking about enrollment, enlistment, or employment after high school!”

The fair will be held on March 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Florida Southern College’s Jenkins Field House.

The free event is open to all students and families. Colleges and employers can sign up here to participate.
