Skill Demonstration Events

FCCLA members have the opportunity to compete in Skill Demonstration Events during the National Fall Conference in Columbus, OH.  Skill Demonstration Events provide opportunities for FCCLA members to demonstrate college and career readiness skills in Family and Consumer Sciences and related occupations. These events introduce FCCLA’s Competitive Events and require a shorter time commitment than STAR Events projects. See the events offered at this National Fall Conference below.
