This week, Alabama students will join over 8,000 other Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) members at California’s San Diego Convention Center to participate in the 2016 FCCLA National Leadership Conference (NLC).
 
The FCCLA NLC provides wonderful opportunities for students to compete in national competitions, gain valuable leadership skills, explore interesting career pathways, have fun making new friends, and be inspired by some of our nation’s leading professionals and top motivational speakers. The theme of this year’s conference is “Empowered.”
 
The goal of this event is to inspire students to make the right choices–to commit themselves to having a positive impact within their families, schools, and communities. During NLC Alabama’s FCCLA members will be participating in 30 different competitions, including the national STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) Events and the FCCLA/LifeSmarts Knowledge Bowl. These contests support the building of leadership and workplace skills in areas such as advocacy, culinary arts, and entrepreneurship.
 
To compete at this level, members first had to successfully earn a spot at the district and state contest levels. This year, more than 4,500 STAR Event participants will be competing. See a full copy of the conference program at http://fcclainc.org/meetings/documents/2016NLC.pdf.
 
Students from the following Alabama schools will be attending and competing for national honors at this event: A. P. Brewer High School, Arab High School, Austin High School, Berry High School, Brookwood High School, Cold Springs High School, Cordova High School, Cullman Area Career Center, East Limestone High School, Elba High School, Elberta Middle School, Enterprise High School, Florence Freshman Center, G.W. Carver High School, Gaylesville High School, Geneva County High School, Horseshoe Bend High School, Hubbertville High School, Leeds High School, Leeds Middle School, Limestone Career Technical Center, Lincoln High School, Muscle Shoals High School, Pleasant Valley High School, Priceville High School, Samson High School, Saraland High School, Saraland Middle School, Sardis High School, Scottsboro High School, Talladega High School, Thompson High School, Wenonah High School, West Morgan High School, and Woodland High School.
