GOAL, a statewide program of the Technical College System of Georgia, honors excellence in academics and leadership among the state’s technical college students. GOAL winners are selected at each of the state’s 22 Technical Colleges, as well as one Board of Regent college with a technical education division.

Register noted, "The purpose of the GOAL program is to spotlight the outstanding achievement by students in Georgia's Technical Colleges and to emphasize the importance of technical education in today’s global workforce.
A screening committee of administrators at Lanier Technical College selected the four semifinalists from a list of students nominated by their instructors." 

"The next step is for a panel of business, civic and industry leaders from the community to interview and evaluate these four students and select one to be the college’s 2016 GOAL winner," explained Register. “The one judged most outstanding will compete in the North regional judging. Three finalists from the North Region will be named and will compete in the statewide GOAL competition in Atlanta on April 19, 2016 and vie to be named as the 2016 statewide GOAL winner.”

The state GOAL winner becomes the student ambassador for the Technical College System of Georgia and receives a grand prize of a new car provided by Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, the statewide corporate sponsor of Georgia’s GOAL program.
