2010 FCCLA State Conference

The 2010 Colorado FCCLA State Leadership Conference was held April 8-10, 2010 at the Denver Marriott Tech Center. The theme of the conference was “FCCLA What’s Your Game Plan”. Northglenn High School had twenty six students compete at this conference. The Colorado State officers had displays of games using their office information at the check in point and they collected games for a community service project.

The keynote speaker was Josh Ship. He is a motivation speaker that inspired the FCCLA members to overcome struggles in their lives. He shared with them how he was abandoned and abused as a child and how he was able to triumph over his struggles. He encouraged the members to live life to the fullest. The Northglenn High School students really enjoyed Josh’s message. I felt that most of them connected with his message because everyone has struggles. He used laughter to get his message out and the students really liked the way he presented his message. Many students told other students at Northglenn about the Keynote speaker. The FCCLA State Officer Team need to continue having a keynote speaker that connects with the students helps with the recruitment of new members because they hear from their peers.
I really felt that the program of work was really easy to connect in to my classes and the FCCLA Conference theme. The Program of work can catch student’s interests and I was able to do activities in my classes that make FCCLA fun and interesting. The FCCLA State Officer team did a nice job of using game pieces in their skit. The students were able to follow the story line. I feel that students informing other students are a great way to recruit new members.
