Pierce County Career Day 2021 is Canceled Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Thank you for your interest in Pierce County Career Day. Due to COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing variant concerns, the Pierce County Career Day event is canceled for 2021. PCCD is a large in-person and hands-on experiential event, and it is extremely important to us that we take all measures to ensure the health and safety of those participating would not be impacted. We are working with partners to determine when it is safe to hold this event.

Sparks fly when the trades open doors for hands-on learning at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup each November.

Students try welding, drive heavy equipment, connect electrical circuits and more. Tomboy Tools hosts a large girls-only section dedicated to encouraging women to seek careers in the trades.
