On February 19 and 20, 2020, the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds will be taken over by thousands of 8th-grade students from Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Worlds of Work organizers anticipate that students all over the state will look back at their WoW experience and realize the event guided their career goals and impacted their lives.

Over 5,000 eighth grade students have registered from Barbour, Butler, Coffee, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Geneva, Henry, Houston, and Pike counties in Alabama; Early, Miller and Seminole counties from Georgia, along with Jackson, Holmes, and Washington counties from Florida.

This career experience will allow students to take part in engaging, educational, and hands-on experiences. Students will become familiar with a broad overview of high-demand, high-wage career opportunities available in the region and gain awareness of exciting career options. Experiences will include positions that are or will be, in high demand in our region over the next ten years.
ALNLA members are encouraged to participate at this event, alongside the Association and the Alabama Green Industry Training Center, to help encourage these students to consider a future career in the green industry. ALNLA and AGITC will have a booth. Members may contact Southeast WoW directly for their own space or use the ALNLA/AGITC space to speak with students.
