VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Twenty-six outstanding students from Valdosta Technical College have been nominated for a prestigious award.

GOAL, the Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership, is awarded to one technical education student each year.  This week kicked-off the first round of judging for this state-wide competition.

Students from each of Georgia's technical colleges can be nominated.  Valdosta Tech says their nominees showed exceptional work ethic and dedication to learning.

"The GOAL Award is very important to technical education in the state of Georgia. The state GOAL winner will travel around the state and serve as an ambassador for technical education," says Christina Moore, Valdosta Tech's P.R. Director.

This week, Valdosta Tech will select four of their twenty-six nominees to be judged by a panel of business and community leaders.  The college has produced two GOAL winners since the award was created in 1971.
