Two Minnesota Chapters score big national financial awards!

 Minnesota FCCLA had 186 delegates attend the National Leadership Conference in San Diego, California. Two schools received awards at Nationals.

 

Wadena Deer Creek was the Student Body Program National Winner. Their project titled “WE Scare Hunger” was inspired by their local food-shelf. They wanted to help local families that needed help. The chapter got their message out by using social media about what they were going to do. They were going to go trick-or-treating for food items that theyIMG_8650 could give to their local food shelf. During that night the members received 640 pounds worth of food that they could give to their food shelf. For their follow up, the members gave a workshop to the people who donated about how their contributions helped their community.

 

 

 

IMG_8651Spring Lake Park was awarded two different awards. Their chapter was a runner up in the Career Connection category at Nationals. The chapter created a project called “Getting in Gears for Family Careers”. The members created a career/college fair which included jobs related to Family and Consumer Sciences. The career fair provided opportunities for the students to interact with workers in a specific job field. Spring Lake Park also was awarded $5,000 in charitable grants and $2,000 worth of technology products. This was awarded through Lead2Feed. Congratulations to these chapters for their amazing representation of Minnesota FCCLA!
