Career Expo Overview

The Adams County Commissioners' Career Expo is a unique, one-of-a-kind career fair designed to get 8th grade youth thinking about their future education and career goals. This annual event is particularly remarkable since it is designed to accommodate the total county 8th grade population and introduce them to professionals in their selected industry choices.

With consistently growing numbers every year we are able to widen our impact, yielding positive effects for both attending students as well as the community at large.

We owe a huge thank you to the Adams County Commissioners for their continued support of this event and the job creation they are promoting through these efforts. We also thank Denver Mart for hosting the event, the Adams County Sheriff's department for providing security. Additionally, we the Colorado State Pupil Transportation Association for the logistics assistance this program receives..

We value and thank all of our vendors, educators, administrators and volunteers for working so hard to ensure the success of Adams County Commissioners' Career Expo.

Please make plans to join us on November 17, 2015 for the event. You will have the opportunity to meet over 5000 young people all interested in learning about what you do.
