Marketplace Exhibits

States and sites are invited to reserve 1 or 2 tables in the Marketplace to share what is working best in their state or site. Marketplace is held on Saturday and is available for viewing all day. Handouts are encouraged so that others can learn from a state or site's exhibit. Marketplace Exhibits will be judged and awards presented to the top five exhibitors on Saturday at the Closing Awards Session.


There has been considerable discussion about the 'awards' that are presented and how they are determined since moving from a 9-month follow-up period to a 12-month follow-up period. The 12-month follow-up period concludes on June 30 and does not provide adequate time to base the awards on the follow-up for the current follow-up class.

CSA representatives are requested to submit nominees and documentation (i.e. NDMS summary reports, testimonial letters, etc. ) for JAG HIGH PERFORMANCE AWARDS in the following categories which align with the JAG Model:

  • Oversight Board
  • Program Management
  • Program Staff
  • Participant Selection
  • Career Association
  • Competency Attainment
  • Employer Marketing and Job Development
  • Follow-up Services
  • National Data Base Participation

JAG recognizes states and sites for achieving the '5 of 5' performance outcomes. Recognition is not provided for local school '5 of 5' achievements. State affiliates should consider offering recognition to Specialists that qualify for the '5 of 5' recognition.
