Miracle Minute will return as part of the 2021 State Leadership Conference! Virtually, it’s difficult to effectively host this event in just a minute, so we’re expanding the opportunity for chapters to participate & encouraging you to involve others in your efforts! That could be hosting a hat day & charging students to participate, challenging classes to a coin war, or encouraging your SLC participants to bring the contents of their piggy banks (or stash of change from the cupholder in their vehicle) – do what works for your chapter! Beginning on Monday, April 12, chapters will be able to report how much change they have collected as part of this initiative. As chapters report, we will update the how much money has been collected. On Tuesday during the Closing Session, we will announce the grand total of money collected. Money from the Miracle Minute will be placed in the Nebraska FCCLA Impact Fund.

SLC Community Service Project members can compete for bragging rights (and a traveling trophy) for their work in supporting the Literature for Littles Project!
