The Glenwood City FCCLA recently competed at the Regional FCCLA Competition at UW-Stout. For the competition students must first select a STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) event.
They then create a project that meets the requirements of their event and prepare to present their project to a panel of judges. Top teams from each category get to move on to the State Competition where they then get to present a second time to a panel of judges and hope to be one of the few selected to make it to the National Competition. This year Glenwood City had three students who competed. Two worked on a team event and the third competed in an individual event. Below the students have described their events and the outcomes.

We competed at Stout on Wednesday, February 4th for FCCLA Regionals, and scored a 100% on our topic, Illustrated Talk. We discussed the topic of Domestic Violence, and talked about the signs of an abusive relationship, how they can start and the outcome of not getting out fast enough. The day was filled with anticipation for the awards ceremony after a long morning of waiting to compete.
My STAR event, recycle and redesign, required me to turn something old into something new. I made an electronic carrier that repurposed old floppy disks, buttons, snap bracelets and old shoe laces. I went for the idea old electronics meet new electronics. My project scored a silver at regionals and I was selected as a voting delegate to represent Glenwood City at state.
