Four Southeast High School FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) members were scheduled to be in Wichita for State FCCLA Leadership Conference April 5-7th. Due to COVID-19, this conference was cancelled and the STAR Events that they had qualified to compete in, were held virtually. The students competed a few weeks ago over Zoom conference calls with judges across the state.
These students initially competed in January at the district level and now, the results have just been posted from their virtual STAR Event competitions. To qualify for Nationals, you have to earn 1st or 2nd place in your event category, and earn at least a score of 85 (Silver medal) or higher.
Annabelle Turpen competed in Event Management, Level 3 and earned a 3rd Place Gold Medal.
Taylore Hudgins competed in Sports Nutrition, Level 3 and earned a 3rd Place Gold Medal.
Miranda Hartman and McKenna Renn competed in Focus on Children, Level 3 and earned 2nd Place, qualifying for National Leadership Conference!
National Leadership Conference was initially scheduled for July 5-9, 2020 in Washington D.C. but has recently changed from an in-person conference to a virtual conference. FCCLA’s Virtual National Leadership Conference will be held July 7-9 and will include keynote speakers, breakout sessions, award recognition, a celebration of the FCCLA Class of 2020, and more.
Miranda and McKenna will be working virtually with Mrs. Holden in the upcoming weeks to get photos of their display board and a recording of their presentation uploaded to a webpage for the National judges to view virtually during the month of June.
Congratulations to our State FCCLA Competitors on these great results!
