Request for Exhibitors

It’s time again for the 11th Annual Wayne Education Network 2019 Middle School Career Fair. This year’s event will be held Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at The Maxwell Center.

Each year over 1,500 Middle School 8th grade students including private, home schools and public schools are invited to participate in the event. Because of the age of the students, we are encouraging all exhibitors to provide some type of interactive presentation into their display. Something simple, like a problem or issue that you have addressed in your business recently. A plumber could bring pipe and fittings that are used in their trade; an engineer could bring drawings from a past job and show the challenges that you faced while creating the drawings; retail merchants can bring their product and show the students how they inventory the products or how they are sold. You never know, you may be the deciding factor for a student to continue his education. The first group of students arrive at 8:30 am with the last group leaving at 12:50 pm.

This year’s Middle School Career Fair is sponsored by our Workforce Investor Sponsors: City of Goldsboro, Housing Authority of the City of Goldsboro, Piedmont Natural Gas and The Maxwell Center; and our Friend Sponsors: Crown Screening, Franklin Baking Company and Wayne UNC Health Care.
