Q&A with Carmel FCCLA president about club, recent competition

Lillian He

What is Carmel FCCLA?

FCCLA is a career and technical student organization that focuses on the family consumer science classes; those are your cooking classes and your education classes and any of your sewing classes. It’s an organization that focuses on student leadership and community service and integrating family and consumer sciences into both of those.

How does the competition aspect work?

FCCLA has a state conference in March. When you go to the state conference, you present your project, you can do it in a group or alone and you can pick whatever you want to do. (At the competition) you present and you get graded on your rubric and you can get a medal. From this you can (qualify) for the national competition.
