For more than a decade, our Career and Technical Education Center’s (CTEC) Digital Design and Marketing students have competed for the opportunity to showcase their original, animated holiday greeting card on the homepage of This year’s winning card (“Snowman on a Sled”) was designed by Ryan Castro, a student representing the East Ramapo Central School District. The annual competition demonstrates the knowledge and skills being taught to our CTEC students in experiential learning environments, providing opportunities to graduate high school with professional skills in high-demand fields. The CTEC Digital Design and Marketing program was developed for the practical student, as well as the creative student, by combining art, digital design, technology and production. Happy holidays from Rockland BOCES!
