               Submissions Due Tuesday, December 14th
 to Mr. Steve Myers at sjmyers@fcps.edu.

Theme: “The Future of Work: The Role of Artificial Intelligence and Automation”

Are robots already here? What do you imagine the workforce will be like in 5 years? 10 years? What role will robots and automation play in the future of work? What new jobs will be available in the future? Robots, artificial intelligence, and other disruptive technologies are poised to radically change the future of work. According to Frey and Osborne: about 47 percent of total US employment is at risk for automation; 51% of job activities can be automated, but less than 5% of jobs are fully automatable. The future of work will be seen in the growth of new jobs and new skills. Entry-level and middle-level skill jobs will see less growth than jobs requiring greater education and more advanced skills. Of the children entering primary school today, 65% will end up working in job categories that do not yet exist.

    NCDA Poetry & Art Contest – Entries may be either poetry or art. Additional details can be found at the NCDA website or the Poetry & Art Contest brochure. All contest entries for consideration need to be emailed to Steve Myers by December 14, 2021. Each entry emailed to Steve Myers should include the student’s name, grade level, and school they attend.
