February 10-14, 2020

Chapters are encouraged to celebrate FCCLA during FCCLA Week, February 10-14, 2020.  While each chapter may have its own specialties, traditions, and recognition, 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:  Be Spirited 

Encourage others to Go For The RED!  Kick off FCCLA week by encouraging your classmates to Go for the Red! Show your FCCLA spirit and promote FCCLA in your community. Share your projects with #FCCLAspirit

Tuesday:  Be Confident 

Be confident in your abilities to succeed. Share how FCCLA has prepared you for a successful future and how it has encouraged you to Believe in Yourself. #FCCLAisConfident

Wednesday:  Be Prepared

Show others how FCCLA career pathways have prepared you for your future! Take part in Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Educator Day and recognize the achievements of FCS educators and programs. #FCCLAcareers

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

  • marriage and family counselor

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.
