Nebraska FCCLA Recognizes State Leaders and Award Winners

The Nebraska Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) met virtually for their annual State Leadership Conference April 12-13 from locations across the state. More than 700 students and advisers from 81 Nebraska schools participated in the conference to grow their leadership skills, celebrate their accomplishments from the past year, and prepare for their future careers with Nebraska FCCLA. Molly Kennedy was the keynote speaker for the event. Her message to students was to ‘Flip Your 20’ and adjust one’s mindset in order to overcome the challenges that life presents. A variety of synchronous breakout sessions and asynchronous activities were available for participants to engage in. Breakout sessions were presented by a variety of individuals and organizations including CommonGround Nebraska, Jana’s Campaign, and Project Extra Mile. 427 students participated in STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) Events, FCCLA’s premier competitive event program. Students placing first and second in the competitive events qualified to compete in the FCCLA National STAR Event Competition will be taking place virtually in May. Members will be recognized for their success through STAR Events during the hybrid National Leadership Conference June 27-July 1, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee, and virtually online.
