Each semester, Winston students select their top three career choices after taking several interest-based career tests through Naviance.
Winston partners with local community businesses who are willing to host students for a day of job shadowing that relates to their career choices. After the job shadowing experience, students are required to prepare a professional presentation (backboard and speech) for the career fair.
Each student describes their research and experiences in their chosen career fields to a small group of peers.

The last day of Hanukkah is the eighth day of Hanukkah. It is known as Zose Hanukkah, Zos Hanukkah or Zot Hanukkah. It is the second day of the month of Tevet and marks the day on which the great miracle of oil occurred, according to Jewish belief. It is a particularly special day because it encapsulates all of Hanukkah.
