NCK Tech Community Fair

We would like to invite you to our Community Fair at North Central Kansas Technical College on Monday, August 29th from 11:30 am until 3:00pm!  Set up will be available from 10:30-11:30am. Some of you may have gotten the opportunity to come to this last year and we have decided to continue it after we had such positive feedback from businesses, students, and faculty.

What is the purpose of the Community Fair and why would I be interested?

Great question!  It will give our students a chance to meet you and learn more about your business to see what opportunities our great community has to offer them as a student here in Beloit, KS.  The majority of our students are from outside communities and may not know everything we can offer.  It is our vision to be able to show them all areas of the community that they potentially will need at any given time while they are here attending NCK Tech and possibly start their career after graduation here with you.

Will lunch be provided?

Of course it will! We will offer lunch and an informational session to learn more about our students and the college during what we like to call “Lunch & Learn”.   We have had lots of exciting changes over the past few years and want to make you aware of everything going on now! This will begin at 11:30am with lunch that we will provide for you and any staff that you would like to participate.

What should we bring?

Students love free stuff…but seriously, who doesn’t!?  Please feel free to bring prizes and/or promotional giveaway items, but more importantly bring information of services you provide.  If you are looking to hire, bring applications with you or information on how they can apply. Placement of businesses for the Fair will be first come first serve.

Each business will be given 1 eight foot table plus chairs for staff.

How can we register for the NCK Tech Community Fair?

Registration and lunch will be free to you and your staff attending. 

Call 785-738-9037 or email Jayme File at with the following information:
