February 11-17, 2018
Chapters are encouraged to celebrate FCCLA during FCCLA Week, February 11-17, 2017. While each chapter may have its own specialties, traditions, and recognitions, the Nebraska FCCLA State Association will be encouraging involvement in FCCLA Week using the techniques outlined below. With any of your efforts, be sure to use the #nefccla and tag @NationalFCCLA on social media. Contact your local news agencies about promoting FCCLA Week and other FCCLA events throughout the year.
Monday: Black, White and Red All Over
Kick off the first day of FCCLA Week by wearing RED! Wear your best FCCLA red and make it a school competition to see how you can wear the most of our favorite color! Share your chapter’s pictures with #spreadtheredne
Tuesday: Careers in Action
Dress up as your dream job, host a career fair or even invite local business leaders into your school to speak. The FACSCAREER possibilities are endless!
Think of all the careers available in your community. Chances are good that many of those align with Family and Consumer Sciences related occupations. Need some examples? Here’s just a few:
- interior designer
- marketing and merchandising
- FACS teacher
- marriage and family counselor
- textile research and development
- home furnishings designer
- property manager
- food scientist
- infant educator
- mental health counselor
- early childhood teacher or care provider
- social worker
Invite one of these individuals to your classroom or chapter to talk about what their job entails and how students can become involved in a career in that field.
Wednesday: InspiRED by FCCLA
Share your #FCCLABFF LOVE with Candygrams of other Thank You Valentines for your members! Was it your grade best friend or FACS teacher that encouraged you to join FCCLA? What about those awesome administrators that support the work in our FACS classrooms and FCCLA chapters everyday? How have they InspiRED you? Share how your Chapter members have been InspiRED by FCCLA!
Thursday: Say Thanks
Celebrate #FCCLAthankful Thursday by telling your teachers, classmates or others that make your school or FCCLA Chapter awesome that you are thankful for them. There are lots of great leaders in your community, school, and workplaces and this day is all about recognizing them. This could be a thank you note, certificate, recognition event, or a tag on social media.
Friday: Make an Impact
Give back and make an impact by either donating back to your community or to the FCCLA Impact Fund. We challenge atleast 50 chapters to complete a service project during FCCLA Week. If Nebraska FCCLA reaches its goal, all chapters that participate will be entered to win a $50 gift card from eGroup. Share what your chapter has been involved with this week using #nefccla on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
