Promotion and Engagement
ICAN will promote this event to every high school in Iowa. School counselors, parents and students will receive weekly updates via email about event exhibitors and features. The event will also be promoted on social media, a college fair focused webinar for students and parents, and through our partnership with the Iowa School Counselor Association (ISCA.)
College & University Exhibitors
Be part of the largest selection of colleges and universities at one fair - see what colleagues from across the country are doing.
Following Iowa ACAC protocols for the 2022-2023 academic year, Golden Circle is a StriveScan Fair. Students will be encouraged to register and have their barcodes at the fair. Learn about StriveScan here.
Apprenticeship & Building Trades/Military
ICAN recognized that many students seek a unique, hands-on career after high school which is why this fair will have exhibitor sections dedicated to apprenticeships and military career options.
Business & Industry Exhibitors
Increase awareness of your company’s career opportunities and expectations by exhibiting your expertise. Tables can include hands-on exhibits and displays, as well as handouts and giveaways for students. Eastern Iowa business exhibitors will be organized by Career Cluster, offering students a glimpse into careers for each cluster. Space is limited and will be given on a first come, first serve basis.
Student Services Exhibitors
ICAN invites organizations who specialize in college planning, career planning/training, student services, and/or financial aid planning to exhibit as part of our Student Services exhibit space.
