Four FCCLA members are competing in this years annual FCCLA competitions. These students worked on their individual projects on their own time while engaged in distanced learning. Melissa Diaz worked closely with the fashion construction competitors, assisting them during the sewing project through zoom and often times in person after school. Jenn Montanez worked with the culinary students teaching skills through zoom or in person. These students will compete against other students in our region and if they place at region they will move on to the state level, where students compete for scholarships and prizes. Once students have created their projects and the supplemental materials they had to record a video of themselves as if they were presenting to a panel of judges.

Competition is a huge part of FCCLA and students submit their projects in hopes to compete at the state level in earn scholarships, prizes and awards. Students across the state are competing and all are judged virtually. Results will be shared during this years virtual State Leadership Meeting in March.

“I decided to compete in fashion construction because of the encouragement I received from my FCCLA advisors and for my love of sewing. Overall it was a really fun and rewarding experience. I improved my skills regarding time management, paying close attention to detail and being confident in my skill set. The digital aspect of it was only but another challenge to overcome.” Alyna Barriga 12th grade.

 “Competitions this year were quite different due to distance learning. These students dedicated time outside of school to create their projects at home, which is impressive. Preparing competitions for online this year was another obstacle these students overcame during an already interesting school year. Melissa Diaz and I are very proud of the hard work these students have put into their competitions this year and wish them the best of luck!” Jenn Montanez
